A shack is not a proper shack without . . .

I always said a shack is not a real shack unless it displays a number plate with the amateur's callsign on it. So, today, I received a blank amateur radio licence plate from Tony EI4DIB. So we headed up to Homebase to get the stick-on characters and lo and behold, I suddenly have a licence plate with my new callsign on it. The photo above was taken here in the shack on Saturday afternoon.

I have worked some nice ones with the new call. My first CW contact with EI2KC was Senegal and my first phone contact was Trinidad.


  1. Hahahahaha! Brill, you are going to have to put it in view of the rig when your live! Congrats again!
