MX0SSW – New Hexbeam by MW0JZE

WP 20140322 006

MX0SSW – Silcoates School in Wakefield, West Yorkshire yesterday took possession of theire new 6 Band Broadband Hexbeam courtesy of Ant MW0JZE.

The Hexbeam was mounted on the roof of the School about 40 feet above ground, the School itself being pretty high above sea level in the local area.

Listen out for the kids (10 – 17 years of age) as they will be QRV most days on HF, Digital and SSB during their School days, lunch times and breaks.

Supervised by their Teacher, Nigel Wears M0NJW, the Hexbeam will make a great addition to their School Radio Shack and help them progress further through the hobby.

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.
