The Radio Society of Great Britain reports that former President Terry Barnes, GI3USS, has recently become a Silent Key.
Radio Amateurs of Canada extends its sincere condolences to his friends and family and to the members of the RSGB.
“Terry served as RSGB President in 1992. He was the first GI to hold the position for some 25 years (the last being Barney Patterson, GI3KYP, in 1967).
Terry had been a volunteer for the Society for some years before his election to President, and put this experience to good use during his term of office.
In his first leader article for RadCom he wrote of EMC problems, ‘black box’ operating and ways that the RSGB could be modernized.
He was also the President of the Radio Amateur Old Timers’ Association (RAOTA) from 1994 until 1998.”
