Johnson joined the club one year after it was founded. He served on the 2nd board of directors, overseeing fundraising for what was then a group of enthusiasts numbering less than 15. George served the post for 3 years, helping raise over $25,000 during which time the club grew to over 65 members.

On July 18, CDXC: the UK DX Foundation held its AGM and annual summer social event. We maxed out our facility with a full house.
