I just realised that Geoff was the guy that I knew at work back in about 1980. We had a number of hams working between several different buildings and divisions. Geoff found out I was interested in 50 MHz crossband and had picked up some USA 6m with a dipole and old Eddystone 770R. He wasn't active at that time as far as I knew, I just recalled that he had been on 6m when in Canada and was not interested in putting on a station now as he didn't have the room for a real antenna where he now was. He mentioned he had built a scanning panoramic receiver of some kind. I wish I had been able to meet him more often than just the occasional lunch break in the canteen. He worked in a different building and our paths didn't cross very often.
I didn't realise that he recently had been living in a place that I passed in my car fairly frequently.
I was overjoyed to find out about his whereabouts, then totally saddened to find that he died recently.
