Hello All !
« on: July 25, 2016, 22:39:59 PM »
Hello all...I joined this Forum back in March this year but didn't get opportunity to introduce myself till now. I am based in West Cork and a licenced radio ham since the late 80s. Like most I started out on the 11m band when I got my first 'Pegasus' CB radio in 1981 operating from near Cahir in Co Tipperary. I enjoy all aspects of radio and great to see this Forum going well after 11 years.

Regards
Hugh

James when repeaters are quite have a listen on 430.075mhz FM. There is an Echolink Node on an elevated location in North Cork and you will hear ham stations on from all over the world calling when they connect into it. Its run by the Avondhu Radio Club.
