About The Suffolk RED Steering Group

The Suffolk RED Steering Group – Is made up of a team of people who are passionate about Amateur Radio. Since 2017, Suffolk RED has undergone some significant changes to its running. The steering group was fully formed, seeing a more public set of faces behind the organisation, an increase in demo tables and the addition of field events & special event stations all adding to what Suffolk RED offers.

Calling all forward thinkers, doers and enthusiastic Amateur Radio hobbyists! We have two vacancies on the Suffolk RED Steering Group – Secretary and an ordinary vacancy. Interested? Send us an email redadmin@suffolkred.co.uk outlining what you can offer RED and we will be in touch.

The Suffolk RED team – In their own words.

Suffolk RED Chairman – Sarah 2E0ISJ – “Hello I’m Sarah, I gained my M6 in March 2016 & 2E0 licence in September 2016 and I will be resitting my M0 having failed in July 2017.

Having been a volunteer on various RAYNET Duties alongside my father (M0JSA Chairman of FDARS) since 2012, I decided that it was daft I couldn’t use the radio and so it began.

Despite only recently ‘coming onto the scene’ recently, I was a CB ‘user’ back in the late 80’s so I am familiar with the world of amateur radio. My main interests in the hobby is HF, Satellites & Metor Scatter and do love a build project! Hoping to get into SOTA, IOTA and DXpeditions.”

Suffolk RED Deputy Chairman – Alex M0USS – Alex gained his M0 in 2017 and met Sarah at his first RED and then again on their 2E0 training course where they struck up a lasting friendship.

“I’m Alex of Suffolk RED. I am fairly new to the hobby having only attained my foundation licence in July 2016.

I had always been interested in radio since a young age as my grandad was an avid CB’er and gave my first radio a well-used Fidelity CB2000FM when I was about 12. The first amateur radio event I attended was RED 4 and I’m proud to now support RED as a member of the committee and a full licence holder.”

Suffolk RED Treasurer – Kevin Ayriss G8MXV – “I’m Kevin G8MXV and founder member of Suffolk RED, and currently its Treasurer.

I have been interested in electronics and radio from a very early age and got my licence in 1977.  I moved to Suffolk in the early 1980s and and was active for a short while but other interests, model aircraft, photography took over. In 2011 I got back into the hobby and I  an interested in HF, CW, QRP, portable antennas, mag loops.

I am currently treasurer of FDARs and organiser for the ESWR rally.”

Coming Soon – Suffolk RED Steering Group Member – Colin Ransom G8LBS introduces himself.
