We would like to offer our respects to Peter Avill G3TPX who sadly passed away this week, after long term illness.

The first distributor for icom in Northern England, Peter was a dedicated Radio enthusiast and his presence will be sadly missed.

Peter was a founding member of the UK FM Group Northern and active with group for many years. Offering his time without question Peter spent many hours teaching his skills to other hams at both Wakefield and Sheffield schools.

Throughout his illness Peter donated equipment to the SYRG for use amongst the community, this donation is now more than ever greatly appreciated and respectfully honoured.

All at South Yorkshire Repeater Group would like to offer our condolences to Peters family.
