As well as radio, Im an avid hill walker. I am also a staunch opponent of the use of indiscriminate weapons, such as antipersonnel landmines and cluster munitions. Therefore I support the charity MAG (Mines Advisory Group) who provide landmine and unexploded ordnance clearance, weapons disposal and education and awareness.

At the end of June, myself and Bob M1BBV will be walking the long distance path of the Lyke Wake Walk, a 40mile challenge walk with 5,000ft of ascent across the North Yorks Moors, in under 24h. Oh, and well throw in a couple of SOTA activations on 2m as well! Details of the walk can be found here - http://www.lykewake.org/route.php
As well as becoming confirmed 'Dirgers', we hope to raise lots of money for MAG. This is where you, the reader of my blog, can help!
