It's been a week since John AE5X posted his last to his "Radio & Photography" blog. I for one, am gong to miss his posts, very, very much.  John has a flair for writing as well as his evident acumen for things photographic.  That he didn't make photography his life's work is astonishing to me. He is more than capable and I think he could have made a comfortably satisfying living from it.

I say that based upon working in the professional photographic support business for close to 30 years. I've come to personally know and have seen the work of some of the best that are out there. John's photos are right up there. There is nothing amateur about his images.

But back to Amateur Radio. John's posts were always interesting and made for an entertainingly good read, whether they were about whatever he was doing at the moment; or even he was just expressing some thought or idea about the hobby.  There are a lot of Amateur Radio blogs out there - heck, just look at my blog roll - these are just a sampling of what is out there, if you look hard enough.  AE5X's "Radio & Photography" ranked high in the Top 5 in my most humble opinion. He will be missed.

Thank you, John, for sharing with us as long as you have. Hope to catch you on the air on a regular basis.

  1. Absolutely agree with you Larry. I will miss his posts as well. But everyone should do what they like. Blogging about radio is just part of my hobby and I still enjoy it. Hopefully you will continue as well. I have seen a lot of good blogs closing after some years. Like people have nothing to write anymore. Hopefully that time will never be for us ;-) 73, Bas
