David Knight, G3YNH (SK)

David Knight, G3YNH passed away suddenly on the 2nd of October 2021 at the age of 69.

Radio had been a large part of his life since childhood. I met him at the age of 12 and we both became radio amateurs in 1969. Dave was a founder member of the Shirehampton Amateur Radio Club in Bristol and taught the RAE [the amateur licence exam back then] course there for many years. His amusing style will be remembered by all of his students!

Dave had been involved in setting up EMC testing laboratories, the design of antenna systems and equipment in the field of high resolution spectroscopy. He was awarded a PhD in microwave spectroscopy at Bristol university in 1985 after a research fellowship at the Daresbury Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory.

Dave and Jenny also founded the company Cameras Underwater in 1995. Many members may have used David’s website www.g3ynh.info – a treasure trove of facts and calculations relating to many technical aspects of our hobby, physics and materials science.

Our thoughts are very much with his friends and family at this time.
