A person search shows only one Paul Wey & he lives close to the Ofcom radio monitoring site.
I would imagine Paul lost a massive part of his life when he lost Scanproma. I know Paul allegedly had issues, but his last period running Scanproma was more chaotic than it previously had been. So maybe something was happening in his life.
I think Paul did far far more good for the hobby, than he did bad.
And I may not think his BBC piece was wise, but that is with hindsight & I do think it shows why we all need to take care. The media are hypocrites & will anything for a cheap & nasty story.
I know a BBC journalist who has been very happy in the past to have stories gathered via a scanner user passed on to him. And I seriously doubt that some of the really good investigative journalism that we see on the BBC could be done without doing some bits & pieces far more dubious than anything we do.
With reference to the Football stuff. Paul never denied that someone who was, or who may have been involved in Milwall violence contacted him & he never denied that he gave them information. But he did say he felt uncomfortable about who they were & gave nothing but the most basic & minimal info that was readily available & not very helpful.
I do not know about others here but I have been contacted for information by people who made me feel something was not right. It is perfectly possible to appear to be helpful & friendly, even when you are not helping.
