owner of the callsign 2AP
was Frank J W Adams.
Frank served at the original
Stonehaven Radio, which was a long range wartime radio
station, during the first world war. His Crown service
also took him to North Africa from which he became an
expert in reading, writing and speaking Arabic.
As one of the Post Office
radio men, the experts in all things related to maritime
radio, Frank served as the Officer in Charge of Wick
Radio/GKR, Radio Surveyor at the Glasgow Ship Inspection
Office and Senior Radio Surveyor at the Leith Ship Radio
Inspection Office where he died in service.
As well as his interest
and profession in radio, Frank was also a keen photographer,
from which hobby we can enjoy the above view of an amateur
radio station from years gone by.
