Wimborne & District Controller – Richard Hawkins

Richard’s interest in radio communications started in primary school in the 1960’s but unfortunately he could not grasp Morse Code to the required standard. He waited until 2003 to take his foundation licence due to the Morse requirement being dropped for the exam. As soon as Richard was licensed, he joined RAYNET.

Richard took on the responsibility of Controller for Wimborne and District Group in 2009 and enjoys the events he has been involved in. He is often involved in Amateur Radio contests, building antennas and reaching out to new countries to complete his logbook.
