About David De La Haye

Coming back to radio after a long time away, I was finally in a position to take my RAE, no wait, It is now the Foundation licence exam.. Well I did not hang about and after a period of just over 3 months, I had taken all three exams at LEFARS and become a fully fledged M0MBD! I have many interests including operating HF & VHF both at home and portable. I have my van pretty much decked out as a mobile shack & antenna farm, and can operate just about anything I can work at home, out and about portable. Parts of the hobby I enjoy are Data modes, SSB DX on both HF & VHF, also weather satellites and I would really like to do more work on the fun-cube satellites and International Space Station. I am an Executive member of LEFARS and act as the Public Relations Officer. I am still trying to manage my work/radio/homelife balance! I am now looking at ways to raise the profile of the club in the public eye, with a lean towards technical advancement and introducing new people to the hobby. We are also attempting to attract people to the club.
