All about Jon Byrne

Hi my name is Jon Byrne from Manchester, UK. I am married to Louise and am the proud Dad of Alfie.

I work at a group of leading & innovative Market Research Companies in Manchester, the Fuller Research Group as the IT Manager, a varied and interesting role which allows me to express my inner and outer geek.

Within the role I am responsible for all IT, Telephony and Audio Visual Services, which cover the Fieldwork AgencyRecruitment Company and Viewing Facilities. On the software side I maintain MS Server 2008 & 2003, Exchange 2007, Active Directory, MSSQL 2008 plus all the related client software. From a hardware point of view we have >50 Desktop PC’s, 3 x Macs, the AV Recording equipment for 8 Viewing Studios including web based video streaming & >30 iPads.

I have passed my ITIL V3 Foundation Certificate.

I have a great interest in the Internet as a tool for universal communication and look forward to help this become a reality. I have a passion for Open DataRights and Knowledge and as such have began to campaign and lobby on a local level to ensure that these principles are upheld.

Away from the computer screen I am a keen genealogist, avid Rugby fan and life long lover of reading.

I am a Radio Amateur holding the call sign 2E0RFU M6BYR and long time MW, LW and SW Listener


I have a number of online projects ongoing the current one being Radio Mart a full featured online marketplace for licensed radio amateurs.

I look foward to hearing from anyone who wishes to communicate regarding any of my above interests.
