Ham Radio Fun

Member: Wolfie

In the Leeds area many TV Engineers were also Radio Hams and we had a regular channel for natter called “Channel X” where we could come and go without signing on or off. There was a large TV shop “Morley bottoms” which due to the location (there’s a clue in the name) had huge masts with aerials and presumably some half decent amplifiers too.

It became common knowledge on Channel X that transmitting on 2Mtrs whilst waiting at the traffic lights outside the shop would completely trash all his pictures, not that we ever did of course. He eventually realised what was going on and would charge out shaking his fists.
