Listen out from this weekend (9th-10th March) for more special event stations on air celebrating the RSGB Centenery.
Following from their successful operations of GR2HQ and GO2HQ, starting this weekend the teams will activate on HF the Callsign ”GD1ØØC” from the Isle of Man (IOTA EU-116). We have already seen ”GM1ØØC” from Scotland, ”GW1ØØC” from Wales and ”GJ1ØØC” from Jersey also take to the air so another new one to add to your collection!. You can keep an eye on who is operating and from where by clicking here.
Please keep an eye on this blog entry and I will post more information when I have it along with the website which will hold all information for these events.
Qsl route is via MØOXO OQRS (Your Qsl Cards are not required so please do not send them!). GL !!
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.
