This is Laurence Barker, G8NJJ amateur radio home page. This site doesn't contain very much yet. I'm building a useful set of web links in the first instance.

I became a radio amateur around 1977 at age 14. I set about trying to make complete transceivers from scratch, and funnily enough didn't make any that worked. Sometime while at university I drifted away from it. However, an interest in radio had dragged me towards a career in and around RF. Subsequently I've become a designer of electronics and systems related to RF in some way - mostly in the radar field.

I decided to re-enter amateur radio in 2011, mostly to "dabble" wth Software Defined Radio. This site will grow to cover details of where I get to, but it will take time!
