A reminder that Nobby (G0VJG) will be Qrv as VK6/G0VJG between the 11th & 16th February 2023. He will be operating from The NCRG Northern Corridor Radio Group about 20km from Perth. He will be using a Kenwood TS-990 with a SPE Expert 2K-FA amplifier and a Ultrabeam UB-04EL-640 antenna at about 100 feet.
Between the 17th and 23rd he will qrv as VK9CVG from the West Island, Cocos Keeling Islands (IOTA OC-003) where he will use a smaller set up of a Yaesu FT-857 and Juma (1000) PA into verticals (80 thro 10m) on the beach.
A huge shout our and thanks to the NCRG Radio Club, Perth, Australia for allowing Nobby the opportunity of using their station and operating from VK6.
Don’t forget that Nobby is a Team Member of MM0UKI, the team heading to Rockall in May 2023. Please check out their Website to keep abreast of plans for the activation of a very rare and dangerous IOTA alongside team mates Emil Bergmann (DL8JJ) and Cam Cameron.

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.
