RADIO - All things Radio & Space                                                                      
I have always had a great interest in 'all things radio', from building crystals sets, valve radios, transistor radios and other electronic gadgets. Great interest in CB when it came long. Passed the Foundation and Intermediate Amateur Licence Exams in the late nineties and am a member of the RSGB.

WHAT IS AMATEUR RADIO?
Amateur radio is all about the skill and fascination of communicating using radio. Radio amateurs use a wide variety of radio communication equipment to communicate with each other and provide emergency communications with their communities. Radio amateurs have their own communication satellites, can talk to astronauts aboard the International Space Station, and often involved in cutting-edge experimental wireless technology. It is an incredible diverse and very popular interest with over six million people involved worldwide.
