Richard Powley (M0IGM) passed away on November the 3rd at the Grantham Hospital Hospice. Richard had been unwell for some time.
Richard first came to SKARS after he answered a call for volunteers to help at one of our JOTA stations and became an active member, a regular on the club net and participated in other club activities and meetings, always keen to offer his advice and assistance to new operators.
In May this year Richard spent an entertaining couple of hours talking and accepting messages over the radio from the members of a local scout group after we went to give a talk and demonstration, going out of his way to assist.
Richard spent much of his life in Germany and after coming back to the hobby operated for a while operated as M/DJ0MDW.
The committee and members of SKARS send their condolences to his wife Joy and his family and friends.
