Originally from Westport in County Mayo on the West coast of the Republic of Ireland, you may have heard me on the air under my call-signEI5IX.
I currently live in London the capital city of the United Kingdom, You can find me active on-air under the Call-signM0XII.
This fantastic hobby started off for me at the tender age of 8 where I had the pleasure of discovering the world of Radio and Broadcasting through the eyes and ears of my Dad(EI9JA). My Dad was the first person who introduced me to Radio with an old 27Mhz (11M) CB radio, I used this as a playground to making new friends and hone the skills of radio communication whilst experimenting with propagation through the aid of various types of antennas "I caught the bug" What next Amateur Radio (HAM).I decided to participated in a Radio Amateurs Exam (RAE) with a Morse Code test of 12WPM through the ODTR / Comreg in Ireland. I received my full class A Amateur Radio (Experimenter) License at the age of 14 under the Call-sign EI5IX and to this day I have yet to look back!
From time to time I have been known to be active in various contests Worldwide, CQ World Wide DX CW/SSB & CQ World Wide WPX Contests, The RSGB - IOTA "Islands on the Air" Contest is one of my favourite radio competitions in the radio calendar, I have worked many Islands around the globe in the IOTA contest down through the years and I've also been active from a various Islands around Ireland for this and other contests. I do take part in VHF & UHF Field Day's & contests throughout Ireland, UK and Europe.
I enjoy operating on all modes and all bands but Morse code (CW) is one of my favourites, I am a Member of the FISTS CW Club and my Member Number is: 16253#
I do not use the QSL Bureau nor Direct QSL.After many years of activity, I have many shoe-boxes filled with cards. While I cherish each QSO I make, I do not seek cards unless it is a new band/country. If you truly need a confirmation of Great Britain from me and it's a must have, then I would be delighted to send one to you100%. Just please email me with a request and I will try toaccommodate you butI would prefer to send via eQSLand LoTWwhere I upload my logbooks quiet regularly and I'm also a validated member on both.
These are the method I use when seeking a confirmation. I hope you understand, and do not consider this a rude practice.
I thoroughly enjoy every aspect of this fantastic hobby and I'm always up for a chat anytime on the radio. So if you do hear me around please by all means give me a shout!
