Nancy Bone, G7UUR 5th May 2022

| May 18, 2022

It is with great regret I announce that Nancy Bone, G7UUR, the co-founder and long-time secretary of the Angel of the North ARC became Silent Key on Thursday the 5th of May 2022.

Nancy, a stalwart lady, had trained as a solicitor and dedicated her life to help the neglected, the abused and the underprivileged. She was the heart and soul of the Angel of the North Amateur Radio Club which was formed in 2008. You could describe Nancy as an Ambassador for Amateur Radio. She was an RSGB Deputy Regional Manager (DRM) for a number of years, a Notice of Variation (NOV) holder for 4 repeaters and instrumental in enabling over one hundred people to achieve an Amateur licence.

In everything that she did, she approached it with enthusiasm and commitment which challenged and inspired others. This was most evident during her planning and organisation of the annual Club Rally at Whitehall Road, Gateshead which was renowned for its “bring and buy” and bacon sandwiches.
On behalf of the whole club I extend our sympathy to her husband Warren, G7MWB and their family.

David Stansfield, G0EVV.
