Lynne Constantine, G6CQG, passed away during the night of the 19th-20th November 2017 after a long battle with cancer.

Early in her career she was the regional Post Office radiophone sales manager for Storno Radiotelephones and one of the very first people in the UK to have two phones installed in her car. In the early 1980s, together with her husband Richard, they founded, Northern Communications.

The company developed significant mail-order amateur radio business and Yaesu dealership. It was, for some time, the main importer of Cushcraft Antennas and distributed its own range of small towers, VHF/UHF antennas scanners and accessories. The company diversified into private mobile radio and expanded to become the regional installation and service centre for Vodafone, later moving into the emerging mobile telematics industry. For the last ten years Lynne was one half of the of the RSGB’s QSL Bureau team and will be sadly missed.

Lynne is survived by husband Richard, G3UGF, son Matthew, 2E1BOO and daughter Emma, 2E1BVJ .
