Special Callsigns


Many of the Special Events that i am involved in can be found in this category.
The main two events over the last few Years have been with GBØANT and also ‘GB4IPY’.

GB0ANT’ has been running now once per annum as part of the Worldwide Antarctic Program (WAP) and we are currently just passed 10,000 q’s in the log as we starts 2010 event. ‘GB4IPY’ ran for two years (now ended) to help in raising awareness of ‘International Polar Year’ and total qso count for this station was 9,555 q’s.

More information is available on the respective pages which can be found in the main Menu to the left of this page.

Other Special Callsigns include those of short event such as ‘GB1TAN’, the activation of the ‘TanHill Inn’, Britains Highest Pub in Swaledale, Yorkshire Dales National Park GB1TAN_2and ‘GB0WFF’ for the World Flora Fauna programme.

More information on all these items can be found somewhere on the site and photographs can be found in the bank of Gallery Photographs again found via the main menu.

Charles M0OXO

I was born in the 1960’s and have lived all my life in the Coal Mining Town of Barnsley in South Yorkshire, Northern England. My parents were all from this area of Yorkshire and my father worked in the main Industry of the local Collieries as a face worker. I have been married to my wife Debbie for 35+ years and we have two children and two grandchildren.

I have been licensed for around 20 years after my interest was re-kindled when I retired from my role as a Police Officer within South Yorkshire Police Force. The latter few years were spent as Radio Operator in the Force Operations Control Room at Sheffield, before my career ended.

IOTA chasing is (and always has been) my real passion, as climbing the ladder to reach Honour Roll status was always my main aim. The 1000 Islands Trophy is still out of reach but I am heading in the right direction. I am currently a Board Member of IOTA Ltd and IREF.

In my free time I am a keen Photographer of Wildlife, Aviation, (anything really) but the QSL Manager role is my main passion within Ham Radio.
