Dave Powis, G4HUP, SK

| February 17, 2017

Sad news that Dave Powis, G4HUP became a silent key on 9 February.

Dave was a well-respected tutor and mentor and a very active member of several radio clubs, mentoring many candidates to gaining their amateur radio licences.

He joined the Examinations Standards Committee in 2007 and spent much of 2016 working with the Exams Group on revising the licence syllabuses.

Late in 2016 he became RSGB Exam Standards Committee Chairman and was just beginning to bring his newest ideas to bear.

He also was well-known for the excellent surface mount soldering classes at the RSGB Convention in recent years.

Our thoughts are with his family and many friends at this difficult time.
