About the Author:

GRAHAM D. LEES

Born in Liverpool and raised in Bebington Wirral, he was educated at Calday Grange Grammar School, West Kirby and trained as a radio officer at Riversdale College of Technology, Liverpool.

He started teaching marine radio and electronics at Riversdale College in 1976 and became senior lecturer in charge of HND and GMDSS courses. After completing 21 years of teaching, he is now retired but continues his involvement in technical writing and advisory work specialising in the training needs of those involved in the marine radio communications and electronic navigational aids industries. In addition, he continues to teach GMDSS at Liverpool John Moores University on a sessional basis.
