      Club Log

 

I first became interested in Amateur Radio back in the 1950’s as a teenager after listening to Keith G3LDJ on a homemade crystal set, becoming a keen SWL for a number of years, but never getting a licence, although I did pass the CW exam. I never thought about the hobby again for over 40 years, until I retired, age 62, in mid 2005, when I decided to rekindle my interest in the hobby. I have worked in the electrical industry all my life, travelled a fair bit and so was always interested in electrics and geography, making Amateur Radio an ideal retirement hobby.

After taking the Foundation and Intermediate courses I got on the air as 2E0RSB in December 2005, upgrading to M0RBG in June 2006.
