Sadly we have to report that one of our fellow amateur radio operators has become a silent key. Peter – GM1CMF passed away in hospital, in Dundee during the week. Peter was well known to Dundee/Angus amateurs, in getting GB3AG on the Air in the 90's. He was always a larger than life character and was interested in many aspects of the hobby. He will be sorely missed.
