Indonesia on 40m - my first DX contact. Unfortunately not confirmed.

Best part of the Hobby

I enjoy experimenting - satellite, fox hunting, antennas etc

About Richard

I love the outdoors, especially hiking and camping when I get the chance.

I’m more into berg than beach or bush.Since I was a child I’ve always been interested in design and technology, and anything unusual.

A few years ago I coached the Lego robotics team that won the national FLL League competition 3 years running.

I’m also a geocacher and was surprised how many hams are also geocachers.

So many things to do, and so little time…
