FAIRWELL BOB BELL

Hello and welcome back.... Sad news with the death of radio communications guru 'Robert (Bob) Bell'.

Bob and partner in crime 'Russell Bryant' was the face of Australian magazines 'CB Action' and 'Radio and Communications magazine' in the 80s & 90s.
He was also a regular writer for Australian Aviation Magazine.

Radio and Communications magazine was the reason why i started this website. I wanted to create a website that followed a similar format of all thing radio inc frequencies.

I have spoken to Bob (while briefly) a while ago but never got the chance to meet him in person.
His dedication and passion for all things Radio (inc Scanners) and Photography (mostly Trains and Ships) showed in his work including several books published by Bob on Aircraft Monitoring which i still own today and also the website http://airsearailroad.com/ which i visit daily.

Bob died of a heart attack yesterday.

RIP Bob (Robert) Bell
(The scanning scene just got a bit quieter...
