Mainly the internet theses days with a sprinkling of F1, Moto Gp , Drinking real ale down the local, Watching most sports in the pub . But before the internet and hence my knowledge of the radio spectrum I was an active amateur radio user hence my Twitter username and car registration  G1TWB. In those days I was using vhf and uhf radio for voice early data (packet radio) and even tv broadcasting and on one of my dual band handsets  144 MHz  / 432 MHz full duplex conversations back in the days before hand held mobile phone but with 2 hours battery life lol who remembers the Tomorrow’s world programme  . Now all the things we did on amateur radio we now can do over the www and on our mobile phones.

Great spotlight Adamtemp64. As I'm not one of the'old lags' it was nice to learn a little more about you and your interests.

Good to see you like NCIS. I'm a big fan of the show; the show it was born from, JAG, and the spin offs, Los Angeles and New Orleans.

You like 80s music, any particular groups or singers? I'm more into 60s/70s but there was some good 80s music.

Lover of all things Samsung. Currently using Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus 128gb

Hi @adamtemp64   Another one here who had no idea you had escaped the spotlight!!

I bet you refused it joy

I see your favourite food is Indian. Are these takeaways or do you cook yourself?

Re: Community Spotlight: adamtemp64

@Cleoriff I was taught at a young age in south London how to cook Indian from scratch as my mother was a driving instructor and taught all the wives of the chefs etc at the local Indian restaurants and was shown how to cook from scratch etc . Yes I cheat now with bought in sauces etc but for events i will make my own sauces and bases etc and slow cook mutton in a vindaloo style sauce after marinating the mutton overnight etc .
