A little history

I have been a Radio Amateur since 1971. Other call sign G8RJQ. Being a Radio Ham is like a drug, once its in your blood you never get rid of it. I love TEN-TEC Brilliant equipment

I started working for PLESSEY RADAR on the Isle of Wight south coast of England at the age of 15 (1967)wiring up radars and installing them on site, after a lot of studies I became an industrial engineer for PLESSEY. In 1990 I moved to PLESSEY South Africa where I am the Senior Production Engineer, I am also the MIL2000/IPC instructor on soldering and wiring of electronic equipment. I was trained by Technical Service International who is one of only 5 Kat A advisor to the pentagon USA (thx Mike).

Thats it, started work at 15 (Plessey 1967) and now 66 retired (Plessey/ Tellumat 2018) its been a great job in the electronic industry, lets hope I made a difference. I know some of the Radars I built are still up and running:- Falklands, South Africa, Chile, Ireland and Egypt all still working in 2018. God bless and thank you, I have had a great time and met so many really nice people _._. __._

MARCONI said in 1917:-

'I consider that the existence of a body of independent and often enthusiastic amateurs, constitutes a valuable asset towards the further development of Wireless Telegraphy'.

Wise Man. If only he could see us now. RIP Marconi.
