H44NT – Callsign changes

H44NT Logo

Breaking News from EA3NT;

”Hi from Solomon islands guys, the weather here is bad. Seas are rough and even the Maritime Department has launched a note not allowing smaller vessels to sail until it gets better.

I am currently in Honiara. I could find a boat to Russell islands, despite the high price of the charter I have decided to go ahead, so now I am waiting for the boat owner to call me when he is ready to sail. I have no idea when it will happen though.


Please note that my callsign from Russell island (OC-168) will be H41NT !!!!! Also, for Bellona island my callsign will be H42NT (OC-127),….and when I will be operative from Honiara, Gaudalcanal my callsign will be H44NT (OC-047)

My internet connection is very limited. No signal in my telephone, and I doubt I will be able to send you any message again, until I get back to Brisbane on Tuesday 17th…..”

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.
