*News* Robbie from Hanois Lighthouse

Was talking over Easter about contacts when Robbie 169AT106 name popped up. He was the lighthouse keeper of the Hanois lighthouse. Jeez I remember the hours we sat on hills guess in the 80’s trying to work him from any given hill with a NATO 2000 and Commant 5/8 Electronica Special. Then we found his story in a newspaper. He was a legend to the radio people. Read his story it’s quite remarkable.
