Club Log

 

I first became interested in Amateur Radio back in the 1950’s as a teenager after listening to Keith G3LDJ on a homemade crystal set, becoming a keen SWL for a number of years, but never getting a licence, although I did pass the CW exam. I never thought about the hobby again for over 40 years, until I retired, age 62, in mid 2005, when I decided to rekindle my interest in the hobby. I have worked in the electrical industry all my life, travelled a fair bit and so was always interested in electrics and geography, making Amateur Radio an ideal retirement hobby.

After taking the Foundation and Intermediate courses I got on the air as 2E0RSB in December 2005, upgrading to M0RBG in June 2006.

CASHOTA ACTIVATION CASTLE HILL & VICTORIA TOWER G/115/C

QSL Card for GB2C and M0RBG/P operating from Castle Hill & Victoria Tower CASHOTA G115

Castle Hill is a scheduled ancient monument situated on a hilltop overlooking Huddersfield, in the Metropolitan Borough of Kirklees. It has been settled for at least 4,000 years. Experts regard it as one of Yorkshire's most important early Iron Age Hill Forts. The summit of Castle Hill is by far the most conspicuous landmark in Huddersfield. The Hill has been a place of recreation for hundreds of years and the easily discernible remains of past occupation have made it a subject for legend, speculation and scientific study.

By 1897 Queen Victoria had reigned over the British Empire for sixty years, longer than any other monarch. A permanent memorial of this event was planned in the form of a tower perched on the hill overlooking the town of Huddersfield. Despite some difficulty raising the money required, the tower was opened by the Earl of Scarborough on 24 June 1899. Although often referred to as the Jubilee Tower, the correct name is the Victoria Tower. Designed by Isaac Jones of London, it was built by the firm of Ben Graham and Sons of Folly Hall, using stone from Crosland Hill. It cost £3,298, and was 106 feet (32.3 m) high, which, added to the height of the hill itself, made the top 1,000 feet (305 m) above sea level.
