"Mr SOTA" - Andy MM0FMF


26 Apr 2023 Geoff Crowley MM5AHO, who has given many LRS talks in the past on his /MM activities (CLICK), returned to talk about:

"Radio from far-flung places - How to fit our hobby into business and other travel"

Having "unretired" in late 2021 after retiring earlier that year from many years running hot dip galvanizing plants, Geoff formed a consultancy advising others in this industry in how to more effectively run these plants that provide corrosion-protection coatings for steel. Visiting some 22 countries in 2022, Geoff had taken his 2m handy with him and related how 2m as a visitor to many places can be an easy way to combine our hobby with working. We also learned about the galvanising process for reducing metallic corrosion, which costs the UK, and most developed countries over 4% of GDP.
