G3PSM Receives DARC Award

Colin Thomas, G3PSM has been awarded the DARC Golden Badge of Honour for his work in achieving an amateur radio allocation at 472 kHz.

Colin G3PSM was involved in the CEPT preparatory process meetings and at the WRC-12 conference itself where in the role of CEPT coordinator for WRC-12 Agenda Item 1.23 he sort to find a balance of interests to achieve an allocation at around 600m. As a result of his deft lobbying in the many meetings, the CEPT proposal for an amateur radio Medium Wave allocation was fully supported and eventually successful.

Colin received his award from the DARC Chair Steffen Schöppe DL7ATE at a DARC hosted dinner.
