Hi Folks,

   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 
March 2015.

   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.

RIP, Clive.
