It is with great sadness I have to report the passing of my friend Ian G3KKD.
Ian's passing will be a great loss to the amateur radio community.
An obituary will be posted in CQ-TV

Very sad news - Ian was a long time member of BATC and will be missed.

He tells his own story in this video:

Ian was a good friend and near neighbour. I had known him for only a decade, which will be much less than many of his BATC friends here. We used to meet at our Thursday lunch sessions, initially in Milton but latterly in Cambridge. A more unassuming man you would not find, yet his wealth of knowledge, once you prised it out of him, was something to witness. Like Arthur, I will very much miss Ian, His was a life to celebrate and remember fondly.

Bernie, Arthur and Noel

Thank you for the kind words about Dad and for the link to the YouTube video. I have not yet been able to watch it, but his Grand Children have and there has been much discussion of it this week. I hope to use some of the colour for it in Dads eulogy and if you have any other remembrances of Dad I would be pleased to know. I hope that in due course (post COVID) we will all be able to meet up and remember Dad in happier circumstances.

Sadly Dad is now 25, but as he would sign himself sometimes

Helen,

Nice to hear from you.

I've just found another video of your Dad on the BATC Youtube channel made in 1970 which was an early videotape where he described his station for the BATC CAT70 event.

Also in the BATC magazine from May 1968 there is a letter on page 3 from Ian describing his adventures in ATV.
