Amateur Radio - Exams Passed
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
Radio & Memorabilia
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 Radio Stations
& Memorabilia page here
You can see our visit to Washford in
, and also a collection
photographs of Malta's Masts here
during our holiday in Malta in April 2004.
We also have tribute to some favourite radio
stations of yesteryear, including favourites BRMB
and Mercia Sound
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 section "UK Radio - A Brief
", 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

May I take this opportunity to thank Julie for
all her help and support while working on
putting our website together. Admittedly

of our holiday photographs, cats and dogs and
especially our cat Tabetha are things we both
