Born in March 1976, Col had an early interest in amateur radio (1989) through his father, GM1RIG. As the years passed, being a keen SWL, he obtained MM0NDX in December 2003.
Not one to chase awards, Col is more interested in gathering DX news - as such he started a small blog called hamspirit.wordpress.com in April 2007. This was his first experience in blogging DX snippets and it soon became a smash hit.
In early 2009, dx-hamspirit.com was born. It went from strength to strength, often breaking DX news or providing exclusive videos/images of expeditions.
In January 2010, DX World.net was created. As owner/publisher, Col thanks its global readership for continued support. Through an advertising campaign, DX World is sometimes able to donate/sponsor upcoming DXpeditions, particularly IOTA. DXWorldShop.net is also available to further help DXpeditions.
A very keen IOTA chaser and activator, Col has visited and operated, so far, from the following islands: EU-008 (Mull, Kerrera), EU-010 (Benbecula, Lewis, Harris, N.Uist, Berneray, S.Uist, Grimsay, Baleshare), EU-059 (St Kilda Archipelago),EU-109 Longstone Isl (Farne Isles), EU-111 (Monach Isles), EU-118 (Flannan Isles), EU-123 (Arran, Inchmickery), NA-010 (Cape Breton Isl), NA-094 (St Paul Island), NA-071(Boca Brava), NA-072 (Naos), NA-088 (Colon), NA-105 (St Maarten), NA-146 (St Barthelemy), NA-170 (San Blas Archipelago), NA-199 (Tintamarre Isl) NA-202 (Isla Grande), NA-203 (Iguana Isl). Team member of PJ7PK - Pelikan Key NA-247NEW
