Martin Richmond-Hardy, G8BHC, died on 5 May 2023.

Although most of you will not have worked Martin on the air he has contributed significantly to the Microwave cause. He was on the organising committee of EME2012 which was held in Cambridge; he was an original committee member of Martlesham Radio Society when G4BPO was winning VHF and Microwave contests; he was Editor of Scatterpoint, the UK Microwave Group newsletter for several years and, most recently, he and his wife, Jen, have led the catering team at the Martlesham Microwave Round Tables.

Martin recently installed a 2.3m dish in his back garden for both Radio Astronomy work but also with the intent of working EME. He has supported local radio clubs and has been a long term JOTA supporter. Last, but by no means least, he was a founder member of the Suffolk Coffee group which meets twice a week to solve all microwave and world problems……

We will miss you Martin.

Graham Murchie, G4FSG
