Arthur G0OHY
With great sadness, we have to announce that Arthur G0OHY became a silent key on 31st August.
He was an essential and very active member of West Manchester Radio Club and always at the core of all our activities. His 'first up the mast' attitude helped spur on the activity at our members outdoor events.
His 2m activity on S23 is legendary. Amateurs astounded at the performance he achieved with his equipment. His anicdotes from his billboard days facinated and his geographical knowledge was like having satellite navigation on your ham radio.
Rest well good friend. Difficult shoes to fill.
