I have just read on G4ILO's One foot in the Grave Blog, that Julian lost his long battle with his illness yesterday: http://onefootingrave.blogspot.co.uk/
Julian was an inspirational writer, anything new he spotted, purchased, or built, he brought to the forefront of his Amateur radio blog: http://blog.g4ilo.com/ Letting us all know his thoughts and modifications. He tried everything from bargain street kits, Baofeng's to Elecraft, and software writing. He enjoyed his hobby and blogging, which was always written to a very high professional standard.
I am going to miss his regular updates on his blog, because I really enjoyed reading what he had written, and couldn't wait for the next item he was going to write about.
My thoughts and condolances must go to his wife Olga and family.
RIP Juilan Moss G4ILO
