On 27th Feb 2019 Norrie Stewart GM1CNH gave an illustrated talk on Amateur Radio Operating in Colombia as HK3/MM0BMG.

Having travelled to Colombia many times since 2010, in 2018 he decided to take some radio equipment with him. This is how he got on...

Self-taught in Amateur Radio while at school and first licenced in 1983 with a class B licence GM1CNH. In 1997 passed the 12 wpm Morse test and gained a class A licence MM0BMG. Worked in the aerospace and defence industry since 1986 on airborne fire control and surveillance radar systems for various fixed wing and rotary wing platforms.

After his presentation, Norrie demonstrated the lightweight HF vertical antenna and tripod that he took to Colombia, and which worked remarkably well even in poor sunspot conditions.
