I have been licensed since 1988 after completing the 9 month City and Guilds Radio Amateur Radio Course.
My first class B call sign was G7DIP, I was then issued with G0RMA on passing the 12WPM morse test in 1992.
I work at Cotswold Airport (EGBP) formerly RAF Kemble, where I provide an Air Traffic Service.
I also hold a (CAA) Civil Aviation Authority Engineering PTC licence and have been providing ATC engineering services at the British Grand Prix Heliport for the last 14years.
Family takes most of my time, but I look forward to riding my BMW R1200GS motorcycle whenever I can, and aim to go on several European trips a year.
