IARU is saddened to announce that IARU Region 1 Vice President Faisal Alajmi, 9K2RR, died on 2 July 2021 following a prolonged period of hospitalisation with COVID.

Faisal had been Region 1 Vice President since the 2014 General Conference and was an energetic and active supporter of amateur radio in the Arab world and globally. He was also an accomplished and successful contester. He represented IARU in the Arab Spectrum Management Group meetings and had attended ITU World Radio Conferences on behalf of IARU.

Speaking on the 2nd July, IARU Region 1 President Don Beattie, G3BJ, said “This is tragic news. Faisal was a valued member of the Executive Committee and of the Region 1 team. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends at this sad time”.

RSGB Spectrum Forum Chairman Murray Niman, G6JYB added “Faisal had diligently supported the work of IARU Region 1 in the Middle East area for several years. Most recently he had been very helpful in gathering active and welcome support from states in the region for the 50MHz allocation at WRC-19.”
