I was born in Yorkshire England in 1937 and moved to NZ in 1964. Throughout all my adult life I have been in the radio communications field. During British and New Zealand Army service as a radio operator I served in England, Germany, Cyprus, Malaysia, New Zealand, Australia and South Vietnam. After my military service of 22 years I worked for the NZ Government as a Radio Officer. I retired from work in September 2002. My other interest is fly fishing for trout and have landed several rainbows and browns in excess of 10lbs in weight from the "Tongariro River" just north of my location. Most days I check all the bands looking for those elusive african stations, although I have worked several they seem to be difficult to hear from my location with only modest antennas and 100w power. I shorten my name to "GEO" for CW qso's.
