I passed the HAREC Amateur Radio exam (CEPT 2) in the summer of 2017. I first got interested in Amateur Radio while on a 4WD trip into the high Victorian Alps in Australia a number of years ago. My buddy was an Australian amateur, he set a vertical antenna hanging up in a tall tree and we were picking up SSB from Germany, I was hooked!

My main interests in the Amateur Radio hobby are SOTA, Portable Ops and homebrewing antennas & rigs. So I'm just starting to explore this great hobby of amateur radio, and finding it to be a great mix of technology, human communications and outdoor activity.

I’m also proud of being the first Chair of The East Leinster Amateur Radio Club, and really look forward to developing the skills of our membership and having a lot of fun in the process.



First got licenced in the UK as M6IES and then progressed to 2E0EIT. Moving back to Ireland Tom found others with an interest in amateur radio and so started semi regular meetings events. With the support of these guys Tom studied for the HAREC exam and successfully passed this In July 2020.



CEPT 2 Licence Holder since July 2020.
