The family of Douglas Wilkes (G0TUC) kindly donated some of his old equipment. His story, and a picture follows:
Born in Birmingham, Doug was a very keen amateur radio enthusiast. He had spent his career as an electronics engineer. He spent many years working at the university of Birmingham before moving to BRMB, Birmingham’s commercial radio station working as a senior technician. He spent his spare time volunteering on hospital radio. In 1981 he had the opportunity to help set up a new commercial radio station, 2 counties radio in Bournemouth as senior engineer. He worked at the station until his retirement. Doug had a real passion for amateur radio and spent long hours on his hobby.
