 Please pass on to interested parties I am sorry if I have not included

It is with deep sadness that I inform you that Jim (VK9NS) passed peacefully
away on Norfolk Island at 15:40 local time on 10 February 2009 after a short

Jim is survived by his wife Kirsti (VK9NL) and his four children: Bruce
(G3HSR), Stuart, Sheena and Fraser (all living in the UK).

Jim's contribution to Amateur Radio, DX-ing and IOTA is inestimable. He will
be sadly missed.

Further information and condolences can be sent to Kirsti at

Bruce (G3HSR)
