It is with deep sadness that I have to inform our members of the passing away of one of our dear friends and active radio amateurs and a long standing member of the Radio Society. Nihal de Silva 4S7NS. News has just come in of Nihal’s passing away after complications as a result of a motor accident a few months ago. Nihal goes back many many years to the early days of amateur radio in Sri Lanka in his schoolboy days from Kurunegala. He took part in the DARC course and obtained his license in 1983. He loved CW and worked often on 20 metres which he liked best
Nihal’s QTH was at Koswatta Rajagiriya. He was a senior air traffic controller and a senior executive in the Civil aviation Department.
Remains will lie at A.F. Raymond’s Funeral Parlour on Tuesday 26th August from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. and on Wednesday 27th August from 10 a.m. Cortege leaves the Parlour at 2.30 p.m. for cremation at Borella Cemetery at 3 p.m.
Our deepest sympathies go out to Nihal’s daughter and her family.
PLEASE ALSO NOTE: As a mark of respect the Monthly meeting scheduled for tomorrow has been postponed .

On the next monthly meeting (date to be notified) Rodney will demonstrate the amazing new digital mode on HF which requires just your transceiver and computer soft-ware, no hardware needed at all. You must not miss this and we invite you to come along and enjoy this presentation.
If you can’t believe just look at the QSL card just received by Rodney, 5 watts all the way across from the USA. The era when you need 400watts to a kilowatt to enjoy dx appears to be over.!
