MØOXO…closed until 14th June………see below…


Qsl Managing at MØOXO is now on hold for several days as I will be away at Ramsey Island, Wales with the Strumble Head DX & Contest Group.

The trip will take place from 07th June until 13th June 2011. We will also take part in the WFF GreenDay event from GWFF-072 (also IOTA EU-124).

Please continue to send Qsl Cards as normal and they will be dealt with within 24hours of my return.

If you have any questions. I will have internet access and should be ok to reply but it will be sporadic as Sheep Sheering on the Island are a priority for the Generators this month 😉

RAMSEY – Update;

Almost 24 hours in and we have 2500 q’s logged using two stations. The third Station (FT1K) which should have run 30/40/80M Digimode has had to be removed as the dedicated Yaesu Power Supply failed. A large hole blew in the side of a transistor. It is hoped we will have a third station running again later today although it will most likely be a 100w station with no Digimode facility. May apologies to the Digi chasers and the EPSK Club who would have liked the rare area 🙁
Weather has been OK although a massive hail storm pushed through last night and was pretty terrifying. For the first time I really got the idea of how it must be to be in a Tornado. Everything survived the storm so we were extremely lucky (or not as the case maybe!). More updates later……

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.
