Wilf Gaye, M0GYE, Silent Key
Sadly Wilf, who recently resigned as
Chairman of the Hastings Electronic and
Radio Club due to ill health, died on
Thursday 6th November.
Wilf joined the Committee at the AGM in
2011, was elected Vice-chairman in 2012
and took over the Chair from me in May
last year. His talk, The Largest
Aspidistra in the World, on the 500kW
propaganda broadcast station built at
Kingstanding in the Ashdown Forest
during the war and where he served his
apprenticeship, was typical of Wilf;
fascinating, meticulously researched
and peppered with amusing personal
recollections. His demonstrations of
SDR at the Club with his Flex1500
impressed us all & inspired several
members to adopt that medium. His
chairmanship of the Club despite
increasing ill health was impressive
and his contribution to the Club will
be greatly missed. RIP Wilf.
