I was very pleased and proud to have received this certificate in the post. Thanks to all at the NRSI.

FISTS CW CLUB
Below is my test card when I was into amateur television.  Also a very interesting RSGB call book from 1962. I’m not listed in the call book as I wasn’t licensed until the late 60s. Plus, my Lister engine logo.
