Amateur Radio

I have been using radio since 1980, through AM CB radio, FM CB Radio and Amateur Radio (Ham Radio). I am an Advanced Licence amateur radio operator with a passion for radio communications and electronics.

As well as holding Foundation, Intermediate and Advanced licences I am also a Radio Society Of Great Britain (RSGB) Registered Assessor.

I am developing online courses for those studying for amateur radio exams, these will go live in the second half of 2019 when the new syllabus comes in to force.

I have also developed a skill for the Amazon Echo which tests a students knowledge of foundation licence syllabus. This will go live when I have rewritten the questions for the new syllabus.

I first got in to radio when I built a radio receiver in after school classes in 1977.  Because I wanted to give children of today the same thrill I got from building my own radio, I am developing a radio course for schools. This will not only teach children about radio, but also electronics and communications. This course will be delivered in schools, with the students building their own radio from scratch. Hopefully for some this will lead to developing their skills further, and gaining their amateur radio licence.
