Mario Donations


The email below was addressed to the webmaster requesting permission  to use some of Mario’s/G8ODE-SK technical articles in a Ham radio magazine in China.

Mario’s widow Pam, has kindly given permission for this to go ahead and I have advised Daniel.Yao accordingly.

I am posting this on the Website and Facebook page as I know that Mario and other contributors would have been delighted with this outcome.


Quote Dear John,

My name is Daniel Yao, an editor who serves CQ Modern Communication ( non-profit institute who has been serving the Hams in China for nearly 5 years).

I’ve recently read lots of articles from G8ODE and found them highly valuable to hams in China. I’m looking forward to forwarding the articles he has written onto our magazine. But first of all, I need to ask for his permission. But unfortunately, I had no luck finding his e-mail address, Since you are the organizer of the finest website, I’m just wondering if you could let me know his e-mail, or just simply let him know and forward this e-mail to him.

I  found it awesome that you are doing something that helps most people. Truly great deed you are doing.

Thanks again.

Look forward to hearing from you.
