I'm Andy from Salisbury, South Wiltshire and this page tells you a little about my small business, my interests and SEO (search engine optimisation).

I've lived in the Cathedral City of Salisbury for the past 10 years although I'm originally from Southampton in South Hampshire.

My business in Salisbury

I run a small computer repair business and look after the PCs and laptops for a number of clients in and around the City. I'm a sole trader and work from home so I guess you could call me a 'one man band'.

I designed a simple website for my business when I first started up but quickly became frustrated when it failed to show up in the Google search engine results page or SERP.

My hobbies and Interests

My hobbies and interests include computers and amateur radio. I bought my first home computer back in the early 90s and it was a Goldstar 286 with MSDOS and Windows 3.0. Computers have change considerably since the early 90s so just imagine how far they will advance in the next 25 years or so. My interest in computers continued and I how run a small business which is:

Salisbury computer repairs

I run Salisbury computer repairs from home and have been in business for around 9 years. Although I face competition from the various computer shops in Salisbury along with PC World, I seem to do OK and have a fair few customers in the area.

Amateur Radio : G7MJV

My other big interest is amateur radio and I've been licensed as G7MJV since the early 90s. I attended an evening classes at Southampton technical college (St. Marys Street) and passed the necessary City And Guilds exams. I then applied to Ofcom for a amateur radio license and they awarded me G7MJV..

At the time a 'G7' was classed as a 'B' license and only allowed access to VHF frequencies and above. To hold an 'A' class license, that would allow me to transmit on lower shortwave frequencies (HF), I would have needed to learn Morse code and be proficient at 12 words per minute (WPM). This requirement has since been dropped and the whole amateur radio licensing system has changed.
