It is with deep sadness that I have to report the passing of yet another of our radio clubs amazing characters and a great friend.
Mr Bob Purves (GM4IKT) passed away this afternoon (26/6/17) at 12:20pm.
Bob will be remembered as a family man, a keen aero modeller and radio ham who quietly encouraged lots of the new blood in our club and was always on hand with a vast technical knowledge which he shared freely.
I am in touch with Margaret and will share details of the funeral as they become available.
Seen you spotted on 20m and 15m CW but couldn't hear you. Had a short stint on 20m this afternoon and logged 32 QSO's on CW. First station I heard was a JA called and called but no joy. Quite deep QSB didn't help. Too nice to be sitting on radio and not the same as it would be if on Tiree. Might have another listen tomorrow after gym and breakfast.
I'm just south of Barra on Vatersay. What band/ Freq?
