11 August Beacons of hope

Unenthralled by the prospect of  a life lived in bed, hoisted from pillow to pot, I have allowed myself to believe that I’m not going to “beat the bugger”, in other words survive the tumour with sufficient faculties intackt to lead a normal life. I have decided to leave my whissper beacons running for as long  as I’m capable to supervise them.

    Sad to hear Julian, but glad to see your wspr spot on 10m via WSPRnet. Good to see that despite your suffering you still want to get a signal out to the world. My thoughts are with you. 73 –Hans

    Julian, even in the most difficult of situations, there is always a little niche to find comfort in. The world is with you (even if it is through WSPR). Best regards to Olga who is by your side. 73 Jan

    Julian – think of you when we see that beacon- it shines bright. You both are in our prayers and thoughts.

    I believe you are beating the bugger each day by not giving up and continuing some enjoyable activity in Ham radio. Your beacon is being heard all over the world and helping hams. My prayers are for your continued improvement. 73 Johnny

    My thoughts and prayers are with you and Olga. ‘Beat the Bugger’ old chap and shine that beacon of hope.
