Originally from the West coast of the Republic of Ireland, Westport in County Mayo to be exact, you may have heard me on the air under my call-sign EI5IX. I'm now currently living in the capital of the United Kingdom, London. You can find me active on-air under the Call-sign M0XII throughout the UK.
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 learning propagation through the aid of various types of antennas "I'd 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,(IOTA) "Islands on the Air" Contest is one of my favorite radio competitions in the radio calendar, I'veworked many Islands around the World in IOTA contests down through the years and I'vealso been active from a various Islands around Ireland.
I do not use the QSL Bureau nor Direct QSL. After 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 you; 100%. Just please email me with a request and I will try to accommodate you but, I would prefer to send via eQSL and LoTW where 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!
