Condolances

Amateur radio has lost its genuine Norse Giant. Jan-Martin was a man of great stature, with an engineering talent to match.

From: Peter Lytz, OH2AVP 2005-04-30 17:47:56
En radioamatör som verkligen hade Ham-Spirit i sin kropp är tyvärr borta.

Jag kan inte uttrycka min sorg i ett e-mail. Jag hoppas dock att de värden som Jan-Martin hade kommer att efterföljas. Jag saknar en vän som jag mött under flere år av Nordiska VHF-möten.

Vi möts en dag på de sälla frekvenserna.

Peter, OH2AVP

I became interested in amateur radio in the late seventies and joined NRRL. Jan Martin wrote a long sequence of articles in the member journal. Later I met him on several occations and the last couple of years he joined my local club. He has been a true enthusiast and inspired many other amateurs all over the world. We have lost a great character.

Jan-Martin, was a remarkable man, I\'ve met him several times during VHF conferences in Weinheim. I sure will not speak for myself if I say, Once you\'ve met Jan-Martin you will never forget him. He was a verry kind man and I realy liked his sense of humor. A genius pioneer in V/U/SHF, A Weinheim meeting will never be the same.

The bad news of his passing away from us made me sad. My sincere condolences to the ones he left.

I was deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Jan-Martin. I had the privilege to make many contacts with him on 2m via aurora and meteor scatter during the 1980s, and I have learned a great deal from his many technical articles in the magazines and newsletters. He was a great engineer and respected radio amateur and he will be sadly missed by his countless friends and admirers in our great hobby. My sincere condolences to his family and friends.

From: Martin Dale, G6ABU 2005-04-30 23:55:47
I was honoured to meet Jan-Martin at Weinheim back in the early 1990\'s.
I already knew of his engineering talent and enthusiasm for ham radio, but it was a real pleasure to meet this kindly giant of a man in person...

En av gigantene innen amatør radio er plutselig borte. I mange, mange år har han, både skriftlig og muntlig, delt sine kunnskaper med alle som trengte en hjelpende hånd. De lange og innholdsrike telefonsamtalene på sen kveldstid vil bli ett savn.

Hvil i fred Jan-Martin.

I met Jan-Martin during several ham-meetings in Weinheim. During the camp fire we had some nice conversations not only about hamstuff but also about other interests.
Always wearing shorts (even during freezing temperatures) and his remarkable appearance (his viking hat) made the news of his passing a shock.
He will be surely missed on the meetings as well as on all the bands. My sincere condolences go out to his family and friends. 73 de PA9JB

I have known Jan-Martin for 35 years, seen his Volvos loaded with uwave and other surplus equipement rescued from his working places and kindly given to his hamradio friends. No LA-hams has ever made so many techinical articles in our hamradio magazines as Jan-Martin. His homepages is showing us how productive hi was.
The hamradio meetings will not be as before without Jan-Martin. We will miss him!

From: Kjell Jarl, SM7GVF 2005-05-01 11:28:51

Det blir tungt att åka till Ånnaboda i år, den plats där jag för första gången träffade Jan-Martin. Jag är nog en av dom få svenskar som har varit på hembesök hos J-M. Något mer otroligt har jag aldrig varit med om i hela mitt liv, radioprylar på varje mm i hela huset,oj oj!. Klockan 11 på kvällen satte vi igång att bygga ett 35 watts 2 meters slutsteg till bilen då J-M tyckte att jag var för svag med IC-202:ans 3 watt. Vi var färdiga kl 2 på natten. Tala om hamspirit!! Vi kommer att sakna dej svårligen Jan-Martin....tomt blir det....

From: Tom Bruhns, K7ITM 2005-05-02 08:55:05

Jeg har kjent Jan-Martin i ca 40 aar .oug det var et sjokk aa hoere at han er doed.
Vi delte interessen for gammelt radioutstyr og amatoer-radio. Hvert aar deltok J-M i Fylkestesten, ofte som den eneste fra Vest-Agder. Han pleide ogsaa og vaere med paa Ligaens aarsmoeter og sist jeg snakket med ham var i Kr.sand ifjor.

J-M hadde et sjeldent talent for radioteknikk og bidro i alle aar med artikler og forslag til tekniske loesninger i vaart medlemsblad og i det engelske.

Han vil virkelig bli savnet - av mange.

From: Uffe PA5DD/OZ1DOQ 2005-05-02 16:15:58
I remember Jan-Martin from when I started attending the Nordic VHF meetings as a teenager many years ago. Since that time we met quite often, and it is hard to believe, than J-M is not going to be there anymore. In the early years it was hard to believe that J-M, with all his stunts (like his viking helmet, wearing shorts in freezing cold weather etc. etc.) was also a brilliant technical mind. A look at his web pages will show you just how creative he was. At least his ideas will stay among us for a good while to come.

Det er nå 30 år siden vi traff hverandre i Bergen.
Siden ble det sommerferie i England på Amatørkonferanse og fabrikkbesøk og Fiat\'en pakket full med antenner, elektronikk og amatørutstyr gjennom tollen. Hadde vi husket å slå av lysene på fergen hadde vi kanskje sluppet å bli dyttet igennom tollen av tollerne... Husker du det? - og det ble bare starten...
Jeg har utrolig mye å takke deg for, Jan-Martin. Menneskelig, faglig og inspirasjonsmessig. Jeg vet at jeg ikke er alene!

Takk for at du har vært den ene, sanne og brennde Jan-Martin vi alle kjenner!

Jan-Martin was a fond user of our forum and always had questioans and many answers about local ww2 history. He wandered around with his GPS and gave us excact locations on every fort or ww2 military installation near Kristiansand. He was specially interested in radio and radar positions, and provided us all with valuable information about different models, locations, etc. We will certainly miss Jan-Martin Nøding at our forum.

I should be happy if there was a “Step-Down” converter to use, from where you are now Jan-Martin!

This is with surprise and sorrow I read about Jan\'s sudden passing. Together with my late father Marc F9FT we had several contacts with him on 144, 432 and 1296 MHz, in the early 80\'s. Sure Jan, you will be missed, but you will not be forgotten.

Very sad to hear that Jan-Martin has passed away, I have never had a QSO with him, but have spent many hours browsing his nice web page for ideas.
Condolences to his family.

I had several interesting discussions about avoiding QRM, splatter and about the IC202...
very interesting topics.
Today I saw the bad news on vhfdx.de making me sad. He was competent, critical, open, experienced
and helpful. We will miss him.

This is a very great loss. I met him several times at Weinheim where we had some nice talks.... I would like to pass my condolences to his family and friends.

Jan-Martin, we will continue our exchange of emails on another level of reality, one day. And that day we will be together with all our friend radioamateurs, for a giant and choral QSO, with no QSB nor QRM. That will be the day of the ethernal joy and happiness.

A great engineer, a great OM...

Jeg har kjent Jan Martin i 35år, og har aldri møtt noen som han. Han har alltid vært meget hjelpsom og intressert i hva andre holdt på med av prosjekter. Og kunne han hjelpe så gjorde han alltid det, både med surplus og information. Ha ga bort ofte det beste han hadde. Jan Martin, du er, og vil bli dypt savnet. Takk for all hjelp og vennskap.
Hilde og Arnt.

My best wishes to his family, I lost with him a very good friend and an excellent
technican. I will remember his visit in my home a couple of years ago and never
forget him.

Very bad news, Jan-Martin helped a lot of hams to start in meteor scatter and VHF.
My condolences to the family.
73 and rest in peace

I hoped to meet Jan-Martin again in three weeks in Annaboda - the guy whom you easily found at the Weinheim VHF meetings as he was always wearing shorts (in late September in Germany!) and being one head taller than all other people.

Now I learn that for our next QSO, radio waves have to travel a very long path.

From: Theo Pol PA9RX 2005-05-06 18:44:53
Rest in peace Jan-Martin hope you find former hamfriends where you are now

Having just returned from one weeks holiday, I was devastated to hear of Jan-Martin\'s death. Having been interested in weak signal VHF for many years, many of his designs and theory were required reading to the newbie VHF DXer.
I pass my condolences to his family. A great man has left us and being only a few years behind him, it serves to make one realise ones mortality.
RIP.
