    Silent key

    Don Hughes – G8WPL – a long standing member of Stockport Radio Society (SRS) passed away on Tuesday evening 16 July 2019 after a long illness.

    Don was very helpful to me as I started my Radio Journey 3 years ago. He was knowledgeable, patient and very giving of his time.

    Radio was Don’s life though he was a Baker by trade and always had stories of himself and his father working DX around the world. I loved to listen to him and I will miss him greatly, as, I am sure will many who knew him. His request was to buried wearing his SRS Uniform.

    73 Don May you truly Rest in Peace my friend de 2E0TWD
