NEWS FOR SCOTLAND (GB2RS Extract)

Some sad news first. John Rankin 2M0JCG from Saltcoats has recently become a Silent Key. He came to amateur radio in 2011 being a CB-er before that and spent 11 years in the British Army where he was no stranger to radio. He was a member of the Ayr Amateur Radio Club and Kilmarnock and Loudon Club. Out condolences go to his family.
