Please continue to scrol down to see information about each team member, plus what modes they operated.
M0TGV – Giles
I am the youngest member of the group and have participated in numerous contests. As this is only my forth year of being licensed, I am still relatively new to the hobby but I was fortunate enough to be on the team who went to St Kilda last year. I can only be found on the voice section of the band as my CW is still a work in progress. I am also a member of Cray Valley Radio Society, M8C & M6T contest team and CDXC.
G4FAL – Nick
Nick G4FAL has been licensed since he was at school in 1974, but really got back into amateur radio when his own children were teenagers. He is very keen on CW contesting and also chasing illusive DX stations. He has operated from 7Q, VP2M, V4 and T32. Nick lives in the second highest house in the City of Sheffield, in South Yorkshire, and spends his time repairing aerials that are regularly damaged by high winds.
