That solves the mystery then.

So, from small beginnings, through innovation and enterprise, in 2013 he sank gently to earth in a golden parachute:

Datong went very, very quiet on the amateur radio front when he started getting seriously involved in the spooky stuff. It's a requirement of being in that business. So from that point on, nothing has been heard of him in public. From the outside, it seems that his change of direction was rather successful.

Still slightly in the "Air"....... in my view... if you are a keen electronics designer, thats what you are, DNA and all that...I seem to remember David mastered in Chemistry, which could lead to other thing of course. Thanks for all the comments though..
