William Charles Albert Carpenter, G4KQJ, 30 November 2014

| December 8, 2014

Ex GB2RS newsreader Bill Carpenter, G4KQJ (known as King Queen Jack) passed away on 30 November 2014 aged 87. The report I have heard was that he had been in hospital, allowed home, collapsed, and was readmitted, only to pass away.

Bill retired from his position as a West Yorkshire GB2RS newsreader in the first half 2014, having served in that position for ten years.
