I'm not sure if this has been posted on here before, I couldn't find anything in the search.
A lot of people over the last couple of years have been wondering where John in Royal Wooton Basset has gone after being off the radio for a long time. I have been told on good authority (via people who have known him far longer than me) that he sadly passed away last year.
I remember John very well. I only used to be able to pick him up when I was on the hills, but he was always pleased to hear me and a pleasant friendly old chap to chat to. I have missed him. Who knows, if the skip is right, we might be able to have a QSO with him on his big rig in the heavens.
John Orangeman, you are a legend of CB radio.
