Tony,

So what were your memories of G5UM?

I used to work him on 2m AM when I was living in north london,, with my old call sign G8ASR in the 60's .
(Yes, me and Tony got our call signs in the same day/week/month!)

Crystal controlled Pye Cambridge AM10D with a QQVO3-10 in the p.a. and two 8-element J-Beams.

Every time I work the re-allocated G5UM call sign in the UKACs, I say good evening Jack,, youre 59 etc etc.

Cheers, David G4ASR

Jack called me on 2mtrs ssb on occasions just after I was licenced, I ran a Trio 9130 into an 8ele Jaybeam or J-Beam?, must have been great conditions in those days.

The man was an absolute gentleman.

I worked Jack regularly on 2m cw, that was an experience I can tell you, he was a great guy to chat with if you caught him on voice.

Worked Jack G5 "Uncle Mike" many times back in the late 60s on 2m Am and ssb and also a couple of times on 4Mtrs am on 70.26 (the only crystal I had on 4m).
A true gent, sadly missed. He always had a cracking signal.

Jack had a card index system. He logged every qso in it. With name call qth etc. So once he had you in the log. He never needed to ask who you were Again!
