I’m a very, at the moment, active amateur radio operator having recorded around 1,700 contacts between the beginning of the year and middle of May, 2018.

Amateur radio interests

My main interest within the hobby are digital modes and I’ve recently progressed from PSK to the magic mode, FT8. This relatively new amateur radio mode has enabled me to make contacts that I never would have thought possible before this year started (e.g. China, Indonesia and Japan).

Radio Society of Great Britain

I’m a member of the RSGB and serve as the Vice Chairman on their Training & Education Committee. I’m also a founder member of the Train the Trainers Team and can often be found popping up around the country sharing current best teaching practice with amateur radio course trainers.

Southport College

I am a qualified teacher and currently deliver computer science and electronics at Southport College to FE and HE students.

Quantum Technology Club & Quantum Code Club

In my spare time, what there is of it, I am the Chairman of the Quantum Technology Club and a founder of the Quantum Code Club for young folk; both are based in Ormskirk.
