I am sorry to report that my friend, near neighbour and fellow Sota chaser Dave G4GKE died suddenly on Saturday the 8th of May 2010.
As a keen chaser of SOTA, WAB IOSA etc Dave will I am sure will be missed by many activators and chasers alike.

Mike, I’m very sorry to hear that Dave is now SK. It was always delighted to work him and on many occasions managed to bag both the Ipswich chasers when I was out activating.

Please pass on my sincere condolences to his family.

Mike,

This is bad news.

Dave’s callsign is here several times in my SOTA log during my SOTA expedtions during the recent years.
I worked Dave for the last time during my SOTA expedition @ the international SOTA weekend on ON/ON-017 - 1 may 2010. A QSL card is already on their way through the buro for this last G4GKE-QSO call. After years the QSL will come back — SK — unconfirmed.

Again someone less in the log for the activators.

“Dave we will miss you”

R.I.P

Please pass on my sincere condolences to the family.

Luc ON6DSL and family.

Hi Mike
I did not know Dave or that there were 3 of us chasing SOTA in Ipswich, I suppose because he was SSB and I only operate CW. However, very sad to hear the news and please pass on my condolences if you can.
Kind regards
David/G4CMQ
