Amateur Radio - Exams
I have been fascinated with radio since
I was a schoolchild. I enjoyed listening
to all manner of radio stations from the
BBC, local radio, pirate stations and
also short wave broadcasts from exotic
sounding stations from all over the
world. I enjoyed making radios from
simple crystal sets to transistorized
receivers. In 2008 I finally took the
plunge and studied for my amateur radio
exams - I was delighted to achieve my
full amateur radio licence, gaining the
call sign MØMTJ. I should have done it
many years earlier! You
can visit my Amateur Radio pages here.
I have been very interested in radio
broadcasting and I have gradually
brought together a small collection of
radio related material including a brief
history of radio developments and other
memorabilia. I have also added
some pages about crystal sets and other
simple radio related circuits. Visit the
Stations & Memorabilia page here.
You can see our visit to Washford in
also a collection photographs of Malta's
taken during our holiday in Malta in
April 2004. We also have tribute
to some favourite radio stations of
yesteryear, including favourites BRMB
More Radio Goodies
Additional radio goodies and memorabilia
are gathered in the AIRWAVES
section in the form my own writings
together with a selection of old
documents, photographs and accounts
published by radio broadcasting
organisations that we hope you'll find
interesting. It is hoped that this
section may gradually be expanded as
time allows, but please also visit my
Radio - A Brief History", located
in the Radio Stations and Memorabilia
section which details the history of
radio from 1920 and includes a section
covering Pirate Radio in the UK.
Apart from radio, there are other
subjects here too including the afore
mentioned cats and dogs for we animal
lovers, a page of sundials which I find
fascinating and a section of 'Other
Stuff' including a page of some
funny pictures and jokes.

May I take this opportunity to thank Julie for
all her help and support while working on
putting our website together. Admittedly
most of the content concerns my own hobbies

especially our cat Tabetha are things we both
