Directorate of Telecommunications
MISCELLANEOUS; RADIO AMATEURS



Introduction
By August 1980, around 10% of Directorate staff held a radio amateur licence, with some being more active then others.

In my case, I held the call sign G3ZDG for ten years and at the time was active on the HF and VHF bands. It was also a period when I spent a lot of my spare time constructing radio and data related equipment.

Like many of my colleagues, the hobby provided beneficial gains for the organisation by expanding one’s personal knowledge and honing practical skills.

Amateur Radio List and Credits
One of the Directorate’s staff, Mike Watson, took the initiative in 1980 to compile a list of licence holders in the organisation and this is reproduced on this page.  My thanks to Mike for sending in this lost gem.

Sadly, a number are now ‘silent keys’ but will be remembered for many reasons including their personalities, humour, technical prowess, enthusiasm and  imparting knowledge to others.
