GB2HI Hilbre Island IOTA EU-120 Qrv this week


GB2HI will be QRV again later this week from Hilbre Island IOTA EU-120.

The team consisting of Kev M0TNX and Martin M3POG aim to be active from Thursday 17th May until Sunday 20th May, times dependant upon Tides at the location.

They will be using Vertical and Wire Dipole antennas, an Icom IC-7400 and a KL500ZC Amplifier. The Rig Interface they will be using has kindly been donated by M0AQC.

Please listen for the guys and give them your support, lets hope the good old British Weather stays OK for them too!

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.
