      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.

  World Wide Flora and Fauna in Amateur Radio

The WWFF program wants to draw attention to the importance of protecting nature, flora and fauna. In this spirit amateur radio operators set up and operate their radio stations from designated nature parks and protected nature areas – generating attention for these areas whilst giving the ham radio community an interesting activity to contact. WWFF is an international and non-commercial program run by the coordinators of a large number of national Flora and Fauna programs.

During the late summer of 2016 I became interested in WWFF and regularly operate from a number of GFF locations:-

 GFF-0214 - RSPB Fairburn Ings (IO93IR / SE42)

GFF- 0014 - Peak District National Park (IO93AN / SE00)

GFF-0193 - RSPB Old Moor Dearn Valley (IO93HM / SE40)

GFF-0349 - RSPB Dove Stone (IO93AM /SE00)
