You’ve reached M0PSX.com – Amateur radio operator Pete Sipple
I first obtained an amateur radio licence in October 2010, after attending a Foundation training course run by the Chelmsford Amateur Radio Society in Danbury, Essex. Station callsign at the time was M6PSI.
I obtained my Intermediate licence in June 2011 (2E0PSL), and then my Full licence in December 2011. I’m now licensed to transmit at powers of up to 400 watts on the amateur bands. I’m often found monitoring GB3DA, the Danbury repeater, or working data modes such as PSK31 and JT65.
About Amateur Radio
For those unfamiliar with Amateur Radio, the licence allows me to talk to other licensed hams around the world on frequencies reserved for non-commercial communications and experimentation. To become an amateur radio operator, you need to complete a short training course and take a multiple-choice exam. You then get an Ofcom licence and a callsign.
