Callsign: ZD8RN
Added by: 5B4AHJ on 2021-08-07 15:53:36

OZ 1962-07-07 reports ZD8RN as a new station in Ascension Island, QTH
Georgetown.

The following biography of ZD8RN was published in the Christmas 1963
edition of The Magazine of the Royal Navy's Communications Branch and the
Royal Naval ARS:

"David Davies was born in Swansea on 7th July, 1932. His first acquaintance
with radio was seeing his father operating a rig which was rack mounted
inside a wardrobe. Also, during the lean years that followed the
depression, his father used to repair sets to earn a little extra money. He
was evacuated to the Rhondda valley during the last war and it was there
that he really became interested in the mystic world of radio, and with a
couple of friends mastered the Morse Code.

In 1948 David joined the Royal Navy as a Boy Telegraphist passing through
the portals of Ganges for his initial training-a path taken by most R.N.
Communicators when they join up. His first ship was the Battle Class
destroyer Sr. James, followed by the battleship Howe and the Aircraft
Carriers Indefatigable and Implacable.

During his service in the latter, he became interested in naval aviation
and was soon to become an Upper Yardsman (Air).

While learning to become a pilot he was asked to reconsider his career
'before the R.A.F. ran out of serviceable training aircraft'. Having been
bitten by the flying bug, David changed over to the Telegraphist (Air) side
and flew in this capacity with the Fleet Air Arm for five years.

On returning to General Service he served as a Radio Supervisor in Pellew
and St. Brides Bay before being selected to become an S.D. Officer.
On completion of the S.D.(C) Course at Mercury, Sub.-Lieutenant Davies was
appointed to Ascension Island as First Lieutenant of the R.N.W/T Station
there. It was there that he was to take up amateur radio in earnest.
Having been resident on the Island
for a few weeks, and subject to a little gentle persuasion from the only
resident amateur there (ZD8JP) he made up his mind to get himself the
necessary licence to operate his own 'Ham' station. The licence, issued by
the Island Authorities, was a collector's item in itself, and informed him
that he was authorised to operate on the International amateur bands under
the call ZD8RN.

The rig that was to be used consisted of a CR 100 of rather doubtful
vintage, which was obtained from the Cable and Wireless station for a
nominal fee, together with an American Command transmitter converted to
operate off an A.C. supply.

With a callsign as rare as ZD8 David was soon being kept busy on 14 Mcls
whenever he appeared, especially by the demands of the amateur operators
in the U.S.A. At one period it was estimated that some three hundred
amateurs from North America were calling him-not counting the onnumerable
others from Europe, Africa and South America. A great deal of fun was had
with this unpretentious rig and before he left Ascension Island contacts
had been made from Norway in the North to the Falkland Isles in the South,
Japan in the East and California in the West. Not bad for a Zl-watt
transmitter and a long wire antenna.

On returning to U.K. after a spell of leave, but before being able to get
himself on the air from home he was once again sent abroad. This time it
was to the Far East and to the State of Brunei where trouble was brewing
up. His job as Naval Communications Officer at the Joint Communications
centre, with all its allied problems, was made a lot easier by his
additional knowledge gained through his hobby.

Having taken the P.M.G. Radio Amateurs Examination successfully, David
operates under the callsign G3SJQ. When he calls CQ nowadays there is no
mad rush for a QSO-he is just another G3 !
However, the hobby has lost none of its hold on him. With a Heathkit DX40
transmitter running 60 watts input, the same old vintage CRl00 as was used
on Ascension Island and a K.W. trap dipole he is making contacts with many
amateurs who first met him as ZD8RN. His particular interest is C.W.
working and Certificate hunting, but he always has time to 'Ragchew',
especially with R.N.A.R.S. members."


ZD8RN QSL required, please.
