Mike Owen, G4YTA, 13th January 2021

| January 14, 2021

It is my sad duty to inform you that Mike Owen, G4YTA passed away on the night of the 13th of January 2021.

Mike was the prime mover in the formation of Flight Refuelling Amateur Radio Society (FRARS). We first met at the Sports and Social bar back in 1978,  just after he joined Flight Refuelling from Westlands in Yeovil. By total chance it turned out he was a fellow Yorkshireman and attended the same Primary school as me in Leeds, 2 years before I started there.

Without Mike’s drive and unmatched enthusiasm for radio I am sure FRARS would never have been set up. We spent many hours talking about possibilities but it was Mike who had the faith.

He is missed.

RIP Mike.
