I started my working life in the AWA Research Laboratory at the end of 1972. It was a well respected place, with the reputation of being industry's only equivalent to a university research department, and Professor Lou Davies having just taken over as its head. I was recruited into the Aerials and Propagation Section — one would not have used the un-British name Antennas in those days — with what now seems a rather oddball bunch of fellow workers.
The Research Lab has long since vanished, and I turned out to be its last new employee. There was work both great and perhaps not quite so great done there. It's all rather long ago and yet it's surprising now to find so much that remains relevant to today.
