"I have known Frank since 1982, he lived near the Botanic Gardens and was a keen gardener, He was also a keen musician and played the organ, piano and keyboard, he was also interested in weather observation using weather satellites and home weather stations when they became available.

When I first met him he was active on all bands HF, VHF and UHF, as he got older he became less active on the HF Bands and more active on 2 metres and 70 cms. using SSB and FM where he had regular skeds with Ron GM4IKU and John GM3LHV"
