Radio Days

Members of South Tyneside Amateur Radio Club operating a special radio station – callsign “GB2SJ” – from the historic Souter Lighthouse in South Shields. They were taking part in an international day of radio activity linking up lighthouses around the world, see this post on my main blog for the full story.

  1. How interesting – the era of lighthouses is so historic & “romantic” – looking forward to reading the full story.

    Hope you can visit Rabaul DP and see the dolphins.

  2. Thanks for posting such great photos… I was wondering how many amateur radio operators were also photographers, nice to see another. I am just starting to get some images up on my site that I have taken over the last 10 years or so but mixing ham radio and photography is intersting to say the least, but loads of fun. Keep up the good work, thanks again.

  4. Curley – this an (expletive deleted) fabulous double portrait. Such expressive faces, such a story being told! The tent makes the lighting and contrast exceptional. If you ever enter photographic competitions, this is one to go with.
