Hi my name is Dave (nickname Wiggy) and live in Bromley Kent UK, My interest with radio was back in 1979 with CB Radio, in 1986 I was licensed with the callsign G1WYG and G0WYG in 1995. My first experience with digital modes was with RTTY and a spectrum 48k, I then heard about Packet radio and in late 1988 I started out this time with a commodore 64 and digicom modem, as the packet bug grew I decided to buy my first PC and use the same digicom modem but modified to work on the PC with Baycom software, then i was hooked the packet radio network took off in a big way so I setup a network node called Wiggy (hence the nickname) on multiple ports with 2 internal 4 port RLC100 cards and external Tnc's, when I got my second PC the headaches really started, networking the 2 computers one running the node with FBB and BPQ (DOS) and the other running a Nos chatnode called sekent, after more than 10 years on packet with a few blown up radios and hard disk failures etc. it was noticeable that the packet network was becoming less popular so after a big decision I decided to close Wiggy and sekent nodes down. With all the hardware lying around I heard about UiView (APRS on 144.800) so I gave that a go after a few years I closed the digipeater on UiView to make way for my new venture Internet Linking. Then in 2015 I reinstated Uiview in conjunction with Echolink this is used to provide information about my links which may be helpful to nearby stations trying to locate them. Computers have been a part of the ham shack for many years now for logging, cw, packet, and other digital modes, so it was inevitable that amateur radio and the Internet should meet, that sparked the interest in ham radio communication via the Internet. A small group of pioneers have combined amateur radio and cyberspace in a very direct way, creating new global gateways. DX contacts are possible through local repeaters or simplex links and conversely a distant repeater is available through your computer.
