Colin, M6NCUColin, M6NCUI became licensed back in 2013. 

I had been interested in radio since the early eighties when I received my first PMR and was able to talk to friends very locally. 

I progressed back in 1989 to CB for a couple of years. 

While having and using the CB I became interested in amateur radio when I watched my uncle G0PVT (silent key) operating and talking to contacts around the world. After enquiring about a course, I found it not possible to complete the course due to being a retained firefighter at the time and our drill night was the same night as the course.

After that I lost interest for twenty years until talking to Neil M0NAS and seeing him operate that the interest reappeared.

I managed to get on a course and gained my Foundation License back in 2013.
