Born in November 1931 and originally licensed as G3HNE in Bradford, Yorkshire in 1951 Glen joined the RAF in the 1950s as an electrical engineer with outside interests in radio and television. He moved to Paisley in 1953 becoming GM3HNE and attended the Glasgow University Radio Club and later the West of Scotland Amateur Radio Society. After moving to Edinburgh in the 1970s he lived in Corstorphine and later at Roseburn and joined the Lothians Radio Society.

He was a keen contestant in LRS 160m Direction Finding Competitions in their early years, but his other radio activities are not known at this time, apart from attending LRS Junk Sales (now "Surplus Equipment Sales").
