Born in the East End of London in 1940 my interest in radio communications was kindled by my science master at school, Jim Turner G3AYZ, and for many years I was a short wave listener and built a lot of my own equipment from war surplus parts.

Originaly licenced in 1980 my call was G6CNQ but my lifelong best friend of Danny Beschizza died some time back and requested that I take over his call sign G4POP so with his wife and OFCOM's co-operation I inherited his call.

My early working life was spent taking my apprenticeships as a motorcycle and a car mechanic, radio took second place to motorcycle racing and car rallying. I married in 1963 and I am pleased to say my wife June has stayed the course and is still with me regardless of my many shortcomings. We have two sons, both of which are now married.

My other lifetime interests have been gliding & flying, flying RC models, sailing, fly fishing and SCUBA diving. Recently back into yachting with my two sons and our Pandora Timaru II
