Peter Blakeborough, G3PYB, 8 January 2016

| January 12, 2016


It is with great sadness that we heard that, following a heart attack on Boxing Day, Peter Blakeborough, G3PYB passed away at about 2pm on January 8th 2016.

Peter was President of the British Amateur Television Club. He was also an active ATV operator, always experimenting with new technologies and helping and encouraging others to get involved in the hobby. He had great interest in the microwave bands and set records, for instance in 2002 the UK 76GHz distance record of 79km (with G8ACE and G8BKE), where 47GHz was used as the talkback frequency.

He was a dear friend, an inspiration to us all and will be sadly missed.

Tribute by Noel, G8GTZ
BATC Chairman
