via the RSGB: RSGB Past President GI3KYP SK

RSGB Past President Alexander Davidson Patterson OBE, FIEE, GI3KYP, died on October 10, 2018, peacefully, at home, surrounded by his family.

Better known as Barney, he was RSGB President in 1967.

Barney travelled widely during his Presidency and, among many other achievements, oversaw the purchase of 28 Little Russel Street, London, as the then-new RSGB HQ.

Also holding the call sign EI4BC, he served as President of the Irish Radio Transmitters Society in 1971 and 1972, the only person ever to have held both posts.

His funeral is on Monday at 1pm in Roselawn Crematorium.

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