Thank you dear sir for all the lives and minds you have touched. In my youth with two young ones, while I can go on and on about ballistics and cybersecurity - I followed in the steps of my forefathers in 42 years of the US Armed Forces with SIGINT. Your knowledge is very good and your passion is present in all your have presented to the community and entire earth. If indeed you have passed away, both my prayers and thoughts go out to you and your family. As I work with the 4th largest software organization in the world, should you require assistance in keeping this site active, transferring it to someone you designate or even preserving its information. Please contact me at the above email address and leave me a number to contact you to discuss in US English. True Texans support freedoms, liberties and knowledge which we know you have shared with the world in joy and without any expectation of admiration, exhortation or wealth. May the Lord be with you and your family follow in your footsteps.

So very sorry to hear the dreadful news that Julian has passed away. He was a truly inspirational figure in the Amateur Radio world and also in the way he publicly dealt with, and bravely fought this scourge of a disease. His passing is a terrible loss to the radio community, and a much greater loss for Olga for whom his love shone so through clearly in his posts and blogs. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

A brave man who enjoyed his hobby to the last moment, and then took it to the next level by sharing it all with the ham community. Condolences to Olga and all his family.

Julian will be missed by many. His contribution to the greatest hobby of Ham Radio is what will make him memorable to me. But I am sure he was also a good friend and nice person to many others.

Hello, my English is not so perfect, please forgive this.
I build today a 2m stealthy antenna that G4ILO has design. It is working 100% very good, I am very happy with antenna as I live in a apartment and I no can have big antenna outside.
Now I am reading that G4ILO has passed away from us and I am feeling guilty and very sad for the loss of such talented man.
My sincere condolence to family of G4ILO, I am sad for your loss.

I am a very new ham and today I built a digital mode interface for my computer using plans from this site. I was going to drop a note to the authour to thank him and report success but instead found myself reading about his poor health and recent passing. I just wanted to say that his site is still helping people like me even now he is not here. My thoughts are with his family.

I recently acquired a KX3 and I absolutely love it. I was however looking for a decent piece of software to manage it and I found that with KComm.
It is a MAGNIFICENT piece of software, you are obviously a very talented designer, analyst and programmer. I knew this already for years since I installed Voaprop.
I'd thank you very much for these 2 fine and very complete applications.
I'm since quite a while reading your One foot in the Grave blog too, I don't want to ruin your day but believe me when I say from my heart that I find it all very very sad.
Life for certain hasn't been treating you fairly.
Take care my friend and say hello to Olga for me.
There's no need for you to answer this knowing that it's a burden for you.

Excellent review on the Miracle whip antenna, I own this antenna as well as the FT-817ND and I feel this antenna was mated especially for the FT-817, from indoors here in Sedona I have worked the big island of Hawaii on 10 meters ssb with an s-5 signal report, worked up to 600 miles on 40 meters ssb with the Miracle whip, 75 meters a counterpoise wire is needed to keep the swr down, love both the radio and the Miracle whip, best travel system ever made !

Re: Stealth Amateur Radio
You praise and condemn antennas you have never used. Bizarre.
It is also strange that you advocate for power levels that you admit are less efficient than higher power levels, yet rail against inefficient antennas.
Efficiency is vastly overrated. Source: QRP ARCI DXCC, WAS and WAC using a FT-817 with an
