David – the “Old Timer”!

January 16, 2013 By: Chris G7DDN Category: Club, News

Almost every month at the moment, it seems one member or another of Wythall Radio Club is in the National Radio Press for some reason!

This month it is the turn of David G0ICJ, whose name and callsign appear in the February edition of RadCom, the national magazine of the Radio Society of Great Britain, out today. David appears in the Old Timer’s Honour Roll of Radio Amateurs who have had unbroken membership of the RSGB for 50 years or more.

David’s name appears in the 51 years list, alongside some other very well-known callsigns in the radio world, notably Peter Martinez G3PLX, inventor of the digital mode PSK31.  Don Beattie G3BJ, one of the leading lights in the reconstruction of the RSGB and Paul O’Kane EI5DI, writer of the very popular SD Contest logging software are also in the same list.

Our congratulations to David and here’s to another 50 years!
