NO GB2RS NEWS ON 1ST JANUARY (2023)

MM1BXF (SK)

GB2RS Extract – with a little bit of additional information and editing to ‘flow’ better.

“……..We start the news for Scotland on a note of deep sadness with the passing of Gavin Nesbitt, MM1BXF on Monday the 19th of December. Gavin was known to many in the RSGB and was one of the West of Scotland Amateur Radio Society’s young and enthusiastic members and a committee member for GMDX. He was a keen electronics enthusiast designing and building his own equipment and was renowned for his in-depth knowledge of all things radio.

Gavin was first licensed in 1997 as MM1BXF, operating from his parent’s QTH in Helensburgh.

Following his career in the Cellular phone industry, he moved to the Czech Republic in 2003, but eventually returning to Cambridge, UK in 2005, still involved in the electronics industry.

Gavin always had a desire to return to Scotland eventually setting up a new QTH in 2020, just outside Lenzie, about 10km from Glasgow. Gavin was QRV from there and could also be heard on the air from many European locations participating in contests and events.

In recent months Gavin was spending time in and out of hospital receiving treatment and gallantly participated in meetings from his hospital bed. He will be greatly missed my many and we send our condolences and thoughts to his wife Bex, and to all his family at this very sad time …………..”
