Snips – News For Scotland – 1st September

The news headlines:

  • Good news for the two-metre band
  • Syllabus 2019 mock exams now available
  • Five UK places for YOTA Winter Camp

Many Glasgow amateurs and surrounds were aware of the passing of Denis – MM0DNX on the 20th of August, with his subsequent funeral taking place at Daldowie Crematorium on Wednesday 28th. It’s a great credit to his club, The Mid Lanark Amateur Radio Society (MLARS), that so many members were able to attend along with other fellow amateurs, to pay their last respects. Christine (Denis’s XYL) and Denis’s family were truly heartened, and their spirits were lifted somewhat with the turnout. A credit to our hobby.  Although not a member of WoSARS he was well ‘kent’ in the Club and there is a wee tribute to him on our Website – HERE .
