It is with sadness we pass on the news that Ian, G8BQT, went silent key on Wednesday, 26/6/19. Ian was the life and soul of a Club Night, and rarely missed an outside event, always ‘taste testing’ the first sausage sandwich! He knew the way to all the rallies, and was a key member of the bacon butty club, although rumours of him consuming cheesy chips were proven by photograph. He had forgotten more about radio than most of us will ever know, and shared his knowledge generously and freely.
As an update, the card has been posted, and the funeral arrangements have been emailed to all of the addresses held. For anyone whose email address we don’t have, the service is at Mintlyn at 1130, on Monday 22nd July, and afterwards at Knights’ Hill, King’s Lynn. Any further updates will be uploaded to here and emailed.
Hello and welcome to the Kings Lynn Amateur Radio Club website.
It is my privilege to take over the position of chairman from Olly (M0OLY). Olly has decided to stand down having served the Club so well for some eight years. It is a tough act to follow!
Since joining King’s Lynn Amateur Radio Club I have assisted with several Special Event Stations, including Lighthouses on the Air. These events give an opportunity to meet other members, and also show aspects of our wide hobby to the public.
The KLARC team are easily contacted through our continuously improving website, or better still, come and meet us in person on a Thursday evening!
Amateur Radio – A 21st Century Hobby
“Whether you enjoy writing software, getting hands-on with practical equipment, developing new technology or simply want to use what’s already there to communicate with others across the world, you’ll find all of this – and more – within amateur radio. It is also great fun. Why don’t you try it?”
