It is with great sadness that I have to inform you that I have just
learnt of the passing of our dear friend Clive Wallis, G3CWV on 27th
Clive has been a very staunch supporter of AMSAT from the very early
days. Many will recall his intense interest and loyalty in following
UOSAT-2/UO-11. He maintained a very comprehensive web site with details
of the spacecraft's activities. He wrote many articles for Oscar News
about his activities. He attended many AMSAT-UK Colloquia.
He was awarded the Louis Varney cup for 2015 by the RSGB, and although
he knew of the award before his passing, the formal presentation is not
until 25 April.
His funeral is to be held on Tue 22 April 2015 at 3.00pm at
Christchurch, Bedford Road, Hitchin, Herts, UK. I am sure that his
family would appreciate the presence of any AMSAT members who are able
to be there.
We send our condolences to his widow, Janet.
Jim Heck G3WGM
Hon Sec AMSAT-UK
