Many years ago, a dear friend and I explored the possibility of becoming licensed radio hams, we were in our teens. It worked out that we couldn’t afford it, so it got shelved. Leap forward to 2016 we had now lived in Gosport for two years. I decided that I wanted a wireless scanner and that is when I discovered GB3IW, the Isle Of Wights repeater. This reactivated my interest leading me to explore the possibility of becoming licensed again. On 09 July I sat and passed the foundation exam and gained the callsigns M6BBB. Easy to remember, I promptly became “Big Bad Bill” to friends.
I now had a problem, because my interests had burgeoned, photography, the local community, armchair astronomy.
Early May 2015, I find it strange that it was so long ago, I came up with my concept of Locality. Primarily, I treat Locality as a “Framework” , it was a thought about integrating my love of photography, amateur radio and the local area. I know it sounds a bit ridiculous, but that’s how my brain works. So, the purpose of this post has been to introduce you to the concept of Locality, and why I post about the topics I enjoy. More to follow. In the meantime, here are some pictures I took on this mornings walk.
