Farewell Tommy GM3VBT (SK)

Tommy GM3VBT was a long time member of both WoSARS and it’s forerunner, The Radio Club of Scotland (RCS). Although operating from his Glasgow QTH, Tommy was always keen to help out in the many amateur contests and especially some of the SPECIAL EVENT stations that the Club took part in.

QSL Cards – CLICK To View

On a Club Night, Tommy was usually found behind the serving counter dispensing tea, coffee and biscuits. Always up for a chat as to who was working whom, new members, equipment and developments in the hobby.

Farewell Tommy ………

………………. you’ll be sadly missed by us all.

Sadly we report that John GM4PLI has become a silent key. He was a long standing member of WoSARS and was always good for a chat on GB3CS or PA. John was unfortunate to never have good health, but soldiered on as best he could. John’s Funeral is on Monday 4th Oct at 11am at Dalnotter Cremetorium – More information – HERE .

From John GM0KTO (Saturday 2nd Oct – 1734hrs) :-

“………….Alan Stark, GM0BUE, whose QTH was in Kilsyth, became a Silent Key on Thursday 9 September, 2021. He had become a victim of COVID-19.

His brother, John, thinks that Alan might have been a former member of WoSARS.
The funeral is on Saturday 9 October, at New Monkland Cemetery, Condorrat Road (B802), Glenmavis.  09.15. Church Service 10.00, followed by a buffet.
I was privileged to work GM0BUE on 6m FM, possibly through GB3SL, while walking the dogs in Alexandra Park. This was quite some time ago and certainly before lock-down……………”
