In the election of 1972, he was appointed to the position of Governor's Councillor by the Governor. An island entrepreneur, he has a modest supplementary income from such things as postcards, mail-order filmstrips, and carvings. His communications training abroad was paid for by the island, and he is considered one of their most valuable citizens, maintaining their link with the rest of the world. In addition to his ham radio activities, he furnishes weather reports, handles 3-4 cables a day, and operates marine radio ZBP, which is the link with passing ships and distress radio for the island.
