A sad note as we have to report the passing of Bill Miller, GM3PMB (founder of Prestwick Circuits – now dissolved) who passed away in Ayr Hospital. Bill was a long serving member of the RSGB . He was admitted to hospital a few days ago with breathing difficulties. His father, GM5VG (Bill Senior – CHAIRMAN & GENERAL MANAGER OF ROLLS ROYCE – Scotland) was a well ‘kent’ VHF experimenter and member of the RSGB Group (RSG) & GLASGOW AMATEUR RADIO & DISTRICT in the 1950’s, and The Radio Club of Scotland (RCS) in the 1960’s. We send our condolences to his family at this sad time.
