The Register reports that the Low Orbit Helium Assisted Navigator (LOHAN) team will be working with radio amateur Paul Shackleton G7ALW.

The report by Lester Haines says Paul G7ALW will be working on the Vulture 2 spaceplane.

Laying out his electronics credentials, Paul said he “designed, built and sold the TRAXA radio beacons  for several years, and there must be about 400 of them in circulation, from the USA to Oz”.

When he’s not earning a crust, Paul splits his free time between “geocaching, 4×4 green laning in my Defender, trying to build a L3 rocket, Ham Radio and watching the occasional episode of The Big Bang Theory“.
