Well, I was delighted, honoured and surprised, to get a nice letter from the RSGB today. In it, it said I’d been awarded the Wortley-Talbot trophy for my experimental work on over the horizon work at 481THz and the article on this published in RadCom last year.
Sadly my continued ill health means I’ll be unable to pick up the award at the RSGB’s AGM in London in April. I just wish my health was better so I could do some field work again soon! Both VLF and optical field work are on hold until I feel better. This year I really really hope I’ll manage it.
To be honest this award came as a complete surprise, but I’d happily trade these lovely awards to be back to my old healthy self.
