Hello and welcome to my Blog, my name is Chris, a bus driver for First Mendip based in Wells, Somerset. Married to Fiona, we live in Midsomer Norton near Bath, with Harvey the dog and Boots the cat. My main hobby is Amateur Radio and I hold the call sign G4KVI. I am the repeater keeper for GB3UB and MB7UB. I have a fascination for the weather and all things to do with nature and science. I am a biker and currently ride a Honda CBfF600. As a Christian I worship, when shifts allow at St. Nicholas Church in Radstock. These are my observations on my life, both at work and at home.

Full Power

It was my birthday a couple of weeks ago and as a result I have been able to upgrade the shack power supply. I now have a Nevada PSW-30H. This is an incredibly  small and very light PSU  that gives a constant 25 amps so  I am now able to run the TS-50 at the full 100w.

Weather station changes

Have made some changes to the weather station here. The sensors were mounted on a fencepost, but with the recent hot weather it appears the wall beneath was acting as a radiator and giving some error on the temperature. Also it was shielded from most of the wind. So, I have moved it to the other side of the garden on the wooden fence and more in the clear, which should give more accurate readings.

Company Elections

If you have found this from one of my adverts this blog will give you an idea of who I am, and what makes me tick. So enjoy looking and use your vote wisely, and please vote, many people died so that we had the opportunity to vote.

Using 112

Was sent this very intersting information about using 112 on your mobile phone. Even I didn't know some of these.
