Amateur Radio - or at least, my version of it.
I have fond memories of Jack,he was very partial to Badger ale,and we shared a few at various times over the years.I remember in the 80s John G3SZG and Jack together with Chris G3TUX going to secret meeting places for a beer....the rest of us tried our best to find them but they kept changing the venue :-)I popped in to see Jack in Basingstoke during his illness,and he was still enthusiastic about radio despite his obvious pain.He gave me a nice Sony Amp (Ive still got it),and we exchanged some stories about radio and building stuff.It was the last time I saw him.He was a lovely bloke...always keen to pass on knowledge,we shared many laughs over the years.I was very sad when he passed away.I might have a card from him somewhere...he gave me a QSL when we first met,I will have to dig about in the mess I call the shack.G4RRA
Hi Paul,Great to hear from you and thank you for your recollections of Jack. I've passed them onto his daughter, Lori!If you've got a QSL card, then that will be brilliant! If you find it and can scan it, I could pass a copy onto Lori.All the best,Tim
