EP6T – Iran


This expedition stands for “ friendship and cultural tolerance. In a country with 80 million inhabitants and only 13 (!) radio amateurs, the user manual written and edited by Tony ON6TM will be a guide for students to learn the basics for their Ham radio ticket.Dr. Fard has confirmed his support towards amateur radio in Iran and is planning assessments at various locations across the nation.  Since our last meeting in Tehran, already 300 candidates have announced their participation for these exams! The Rockall DX group has been granted permission to welcome the radio amateurs from Iran at the expedition location.  Some of them will be right next our side to learn the skills about pile-up handling and get some insight in station managing.Mohammad EP3MIR will be our guide and will also assist with local negotiations. Our pilot stations Bjorn ON9CFG and Floyd N5FG will work together with Theo ON4ATW and provide us with the necessary feedback. In the meantime we have our website up and running !

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.
