‘Royal Wedding’ event closes…..


Well its all over for me and the ‘MRØOXO‘ logbook is closed for the last time.
The event seemed to be welcomed by most and after 25 hours operating, here
are my results:

06/05/11 – ( 8 hours operating) – 527 Q’s (163 were Japan) All SSB
07/05/11 – ( 7 hours operating) – 167 Q’s (  83 were Japan) All Digi
08/05/11 – ( 4 hours operating) – 143 Q’s (  52 were Japan) All Digi
09/05/11 – ( 6 hours operating) – 164 Q’s (  88 were Japan) All Digi

TOTAL – 1001 Q’s

I was very pleased with how things went and many stations were reporting huge pile-ups
and qso numbers. Band conditions were ok for me albeit most of my contacts were
on 15 and 17m apart from 6 JA stations i managed to bag on 12m RTTY.

Thanks to all the stations that supported me and not least the guys (and one YL!) in Japan
for their part in achieving the 477 JA q’s, it made the event very worthwhile for me so

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.
