The very first post

Well here we are, first time that i have ever done this. My name is Ken Underwood,  first licensed in July 1963 back in Hayes,  Middlesex west of London and now living in  Annesley North Nottinghamshire.
Retired and enjoying radio as i now have plenty of time on my hands.
Hope to talk soon.

Just an update, we moved home on the 23rd March 2012 to Nottingham. We have now settled in just fine and enjoying this part of the country, the local people here are so friendly, we have been made extremely welcome.
Feels like we have come home as the next village is called "UNDERWOOD" how spooky.
