Mid June will see a new owner of the business. All stock, spares and manufacturing is being transferred in early June over to a long standing customer of G Whip for many years who has a vast experience and knowledge of high quality engineering and manufacturing. G Whip has been transferred to Andrew Rushton GW0UZK who will be the new owner and running the day to day business as from June 12th, but please be patient as he already has orders in and I am still helping build units for him, you can email Andrew for further help and information at mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
Geoff/Janet will support Andrew in all aspects of G Whip and wish him and his Wife well in his new venture.
Andrew will re-introduce the mobiles and base station antennas plus the larger Doublets etc that we just did not have the time to produce, but be patient as he already has lots to do.

I did semi retire in 1998 but traveled the World for the next 16 years in USA/Japan/Korea/Malaysia/Vietnam/Indonesia/Thailand/Singapore etc on mega £M Communications business, I retired again in 2014 but due to the demand of G Whips Commercial and Amateur Radio products I continued until 2017, now its time to call it a day after working 18/7 365 days a year which has been a challenge for both my Wife and myself. We wish the new crew all the best.
