M3 - The Team

THE TEAM

This page is intended to introduce you to the people who you will see a lot of over the weekend. 

Do remember, that they are all here to help, and all are licensed radio amateurs.

So somewhere in the building there will be someone to answer your questions.

Please note, that all the following give their services Free of charge.

All tutors and volunteers pay for their own travel fees, tea/coffee and lunches.

The monies that you pay for the course are paid to the examining Board and not ourselves.
