Memory of Johan “Papa X-Ray

Today marks four years since one of the most recognizable stations passed away. Johan “Papa X-ray” was king of the UK40 when sporadic-e conditions were on between the United Kingdom and the Netherlands. Sitting either channels 32, 36 or 38 you’d hear his “Calling the UK, Papa X-Ray Holland is by” Years later we would meet again while I was on an I.O.T.A activation. We stayed in touch after this via many letters. Johan your voice was a true part of 11m. It’s a worse place since.
