Hi Jim,

He is going to be missed as I learnt a lot from Clive decoding telemetry on
UO-11 and am saddened by the news of his passing.

I will always remember his great sense of humour on an evening out during
the Colloquium and his interests in the workings of the satellites!

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

   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.
