I passed my foundation amatuer licence in 2011 and progressed on to the intermediate license in nov. 2012

after some frantic study I passed my advanced license exam and received my full callsign on 10/5/2013

The ship on my QSL card is the MV VITA launched in 1927 by Camper and Nicholson, she was built for Sir Thomas Sopwith the designer of the Sopwith camel biplane, after 2 years Sir Thomas sold the MV Vita to Sir John Shelley-Rolls who renamed her the MVALISTOR.

In 1939 the ministry of war transport acquired the MV ALISTOR for use as a stores ferry, carrying supplies to naval vessels at the entrance to Strangford lough, she carried out this service throughout the secnd world war and was to be repainted and returned to her owner the MV ALISTOR was moored of Ringhaddy quay for her crew to start work however a fire broke out in the galley and destroyed the interiour and she sank to the bottom of Ringhaddy sound five days later.

The ALISTOR is now a popular dive site in N.Ireland with many dive clubs making the trip to see her, she sits upright with her funnel still standing about 80-100m off Ringhaddy quay and half a mile away from where i grew up snorkeling diving and fishing.

my working conditions are:

HF RIGS. ICOM IC-720A, YEASU FT 817 and an ALBRECHT AE485S 10M MOBILE SET

VHF / UHF. PHILLIPS FM1100 2M SET AND A YEASU VX6 2/70 HANDHELD

HOPE TO HEAR YOU ON THE AIR SOON
