Stew Rolfe, GW0ETF

Licensed since 1986 though I was a very keen swl during the ’60s while at school. I’d be an old-timer GW3 by now if university, climbing, and the 1970s habit of growing hair and a beard and bumming around the world in ragged jeans hadn’t taken over; still got the beard but the hair’s on it’s way out now. The purchase of a first cottage in the hills of north Wales in 1981 and a chance discovery that Ken McCoy GW8CMY was a close neighbour re-kindled my curiosity in the magic of short waves.
