RSGB's Bennett Prize

This morning I received a total surprise in the form of a letter from Graham Coomber G0NBI, RSGB General Manager, to tell me they have awarded me the Bennett Prize, G8PF, to "recognise any significant contribution which furthers the art of radio communications" for my article last  year in RadCom on 472kHz earth-electrode antennas.  Sadly, my health will prevent me from picking up the award at the RSGB's AGM in Manchester next month. I was quite amazed and very humbled.

Congratulations you deserve it. I re-read your 1975 Radcom article on communications at frequencies below 10 kHz a few months ago. The thing that struck me was how you had predicted the way contacts are made over distances all these years later. Who would have thought we would have the computer software to do it but it's the same principle as a very narrow filter and a chart recorder that your article showed.
I think it's brilliant you've got the award just when you are active using your earth-electrode antenna and getting good results !!
