‘Q’ – Queen event closes in UK


The Queen Diamond Jubilee Special ‘Q’ Callsigns event in the UK ended at Midnight last night.

The Bands saw lots of activity over the last month when UK Stations had the opportunity to use the letter ‘Q’ in their prefix to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee. Awards for working 100 of these special stations are available and the event seemed very popular with good pile-ups and qso numbers despite the poor band conditions. Well done to those who took part and thanks to the chasers, a very memorable event for sure.

See you for the Olympic (‘O’) event in a few weeks time!

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.
