Great news from the Mediterraneo Dx Club International Team. The leader Antonio, IZ8CCW and co-leader Gabriele, I2VGW are happy to announce to the DX community that after many months of hard work and with the great help of a local friend, Manjur, they were able to obtain a wonderful set of twin call signs that will accompany the team during their new DXpedition to Bangladesh: S21ZBC AND S21ZBB.
As a matter of fact, they are going to use the first one ( S21ZBC) with the DXpedition starting November 16th and ending November 22nd. Then they’ll shift to the other call (S21ZBB) that they’ll begin using November 23rd for the CQ WW CW CONTEST week-end and for those remaining days until they pack up and leave the country.
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.
