Another Ham Beacon Extinguished

10 Feb

From time to time I write about radio persons that I hear or look for on familiar frequencies or times. A predictable  rhythm that beats with the regularity of cicadas. I call them “Beacons in my night”. These all too familiar regulars are becoming scarce these days. Another beacon was extinguished today. With thanks to the Japanese Blog “Small Talk” I found the following news.

Subject: Jim – VK9NS – SK

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

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 illness.

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)

Thanks for reading my blog. Best, Chas W7MAP/5
