Marion Island qrv again

Marion Island ASTER

David ZS1BCE has been appointed as the new radio technician for Marion Island until 2014.

He departs from Cape Town in April this year and will only be active once the ship departs with the old team about 4 weeks later. He will be active on most HF bands; SSB only.

No call sign has been applied for yet, but David wishes to apply for ZS8D. Our old friend Pierre Tromp ZS1HF / ZS8M will be his Qsl Manager.

All enquiries strictly via ZS1HF.

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.
