M0GEJ is an amateur radio operator based in the south west of England and first licensed as 2E1IDT in 2001. I also hold the US General callsign KE5WUL.
I was introduced to amateur radio by my cousin G7KWO who helpfully found a novice licence course for my brother and I. My first rig was a Yaesu FT 290R which meant that along with going off to university and a lack of funds I didn’t manage to get onto HF under my own call until about the beginning of 2007. Later that year I upgraded to get my full licence after passing the exam with the Bishop Auckland Amateur Radio Club.
At home I prefer to operate on digital modes and cw. I am working towards DXCC on 20m on digital modes, and increasing my confidence in cw.
