About me

Started my passion with radio in my childhood, inspired by my father VR2UNG, who is an amazing mentor (QSL card in my profile is my father and I).

Passed the City & Guilds Exam and got my license in 1998 in the UK (M1ENG), in the same year I applied my HK callsign VR2XNG and helped ran the Amateur Radio Club at the University of Warwick (M1ESE). 

After graduation, I returned to Hong Kong in 2000 and worked many stations in UK, Italy, Japan (all zones) on 6m SSB ,with a small antenna on my balcony and FT-100 during the last solar cycle.

I like traveling with my radio, it is great to have a few callsigns on hand so that I can operate around the World.  My favorite destinations includes UK, Europe, Japan and Taiwan.

Radio Scouting

I continued my passion in Radio Scouting in the Hong Kong Island Region (HKIR), I help run the Jamboree On the Air (JOTA) HKIR base and Scout Communicator Badge and Electronic Badge Courses ever since.  I was a founding committee member of HKIR IT Club VR2HKS and the club also hold Scout Computer Badge courses and Regional activities (such as Scout camps/Scout Jamboree and Island Scout Day) each year.
