NL0H Alaska (IOTA Contest)

Henry NL0H is preparing to be active for the next few days including during the RSGB IOTA contest from St. Lawrence Island IOTA NA-040.
He has been trying to set up a 10-80 end fed at the top of the mountain, his main obstacle on the Island. Although low to the ground to the South, on the North side it is 500ft above the water. He is not sure how good it will work but he is hopeful it will make a significant improvement. He has been hearing good sigs from VK on 80m, EU on 15m and also VU and Asia on 17m.
He will be qrv 15-20-40-80 during the contest although his focus will be on 20-40 and his only anticipated problem is how long his batteries will work for.

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.
