Tommy Knight, G2FUU celebrates his 100th birthday!

| February 19, 2021

Tommy Knight, G2FUU celebrated his 100th birthday this month. He became interested in amateur radio when he left school because a friend was a radio amateur. Instead of waiting to be called up for WWII he decided to volunteer for the RAF and spent the war fitting radar into Spitfires.

After the war, he took his amateur radio licence and he has always been keen on overseas contacts. He has enjoyed regular skeds on Sunday mornings with radio amateurs in Australia, NZ and West Indies and occasionally he and his wife, Olive, met them in person for holidays.

Tommy is still very active on the air when he is able, especially as part of ROAR (Rotarians Over Amateur Radio) Net.
