Alan proudly shows his Rochester DX Association shirt!

Alan Masson GM3PSP gave his Presidential Address "60 Years of Amateur Radio"at the first meeting of the new club year on 11th September 2019. Starting as an SWL at school in the late-1950s and building a crystal set, he became licensed in 1962 as GM3PSP, building most of his (valve) equipment. He was active in the LRS, including Field Days and portable expeditions, becoming Secretary in 1967-68. He left Edinburgh in 1969 to work for Kodak in Harrow, Hemel Hempstead, Rochester NY, & Hollywood CA. In 2005 he retired back to Rochester NY for a few years before finally returning to Edinburgh in 2009. He was active on the air and in the local clubs in all those locations and obtained his US Extra Class licence K6PSP in Los Angeles in 2003.

Needless to say, working for Kodak, he took a lot of photographs (and still does - see this website!) and showed a selection of them.
