  1. Hi, Bill! Many thanks–Not only another great piece, but one about a topic that usually “flies under the radar”!
    I became acquainted with Jessop Nott when he came into my dad’s service station to fill up his Cadillac with gas. He was a bit of a character. As you mentioned, he was a ham radio operator; his call letters were “VE6JJ, with the “JJ” standing for “Jesse James”. Not only did he have radio equipment at his house, but he had a portable unit in the trunk of his car. I can remember one occasion when he was parked at the gas pumps and his car’s trunk lid was open. The gentleman in the car behind his asked him what he had in the trunk, and his reply was that Cadillacs were underpowered, and he needed a second engine to help the car climb hills! As I said, he was a bit of character.
