Old Photo’s of Mostly Old Ham’s

Okay the Obvious Bit.

If I have put the wrong name in or completely not put a name in at all then I am sorry, just drop me a quick e-mail and I will sort this out.

I like it when I come across photo’s of Local Hams, this collection was passed to me by a friend, the quality of some of the Photos are a bit poor, but I have uploaded them anyway as they may include some Hams that I do not know.

The Old Green Tower was sadly crushed to stop non-club members from using the Tower as it used to be lent out when people needed it such as when the German Cub members visited the Island because that is what kind Amateurs would do, but a Certain Few that took over the Club had Desided that they did not want this to happen anymore so it was Destroyed.

One good thing about these Events used to be that you could sometimes grab a bargain at it is the nearest tht we get to going across for a HamFest of any size, especially as it costs a small fortune these days to travel too and from the Island.

A Press Cutting from the 2002 Isle of Man Courier, there is quite a few Characters in this one, thankfully as Ever they have Given the Names but messed up the Order Somewhat, I only know four of them (Frank Goldsmith, Harry Blackburn (MD0HEB), Ann Baillie-Searle and John Butler (GD0NFN)) so if anyone can Help with the Rest it would be great.
