Welcome to M3UHQ

Amateur Radio portable and base station located near Exeter in Devon.

My primary interests is long distance communication via radio using as little power as possible.

All of my radios and accessories are Chinese imports, as I am not prepared to pay silly money for this hobby not when there is good enough tech available directly from China.

I am the proud owner and CEO of The CQ Shop, so do come and tka e alook around, my stock is always changing, plus we now have a FREE Classifieds service for everyone to use.

My interest in the amateur radio hobby is now stronger than ever before, so far this year there has been lots of changes within my life and I realise just how important it is to get back into the hobbies and interests I once loved and was also proud to be involved with.

Youre welcome to ask me about more details if you’d like to, please use any of the  details found on the ‘contact’ page.
