today was the start of SOS radio week, it runs for a week and the concept is that we raise funds via sponsorship for the RNLI.
last year SOS radio week raised just over £3000 for the charity. this years goal is £5000, so this morning i cranked the radio up and started to put my call out there.
within 5 minutes i had a japanese station call though JA7NJN (YUO) from Tokyo. followed by a VK station VK6TKK (PETER) the day has continued to be a success with just over 30 contacts in total.
the thing i enjoy about my hobbies is the ability to talk to others all over the world making new friends everywhere. my call is M6DER and i run a dstar station along with vhf and uhf.
one day i shall tell you more about my hobbies of amature radio or as its called sometimes Ham radio. well that it for today sorry it only short
