technology, amateur radio, scouting and me



Hi, thanks for dropping by
My name is Gareth Howell and I am an Engineer. It’s true, I admit it. As with Dilbert, I too, started taking things apart and “re-purposing” them at an early age.

If you are looking for my old business website Business Continuity UK you need to head over to
On this site, you can find:

  • My Blog which ranges over the whole of my day to day life: business, technology, leisure activities etc. If you want to focus on one aspect, use the Categories list.
  • A set of pages that document various aspects of my Amateur Radio existence as M5KVK
  • A link to the output from my investigations into the history of the Howell Family
