I've just heard that a friend I met through the wonderful Malcolm Sinclair, Dave Russel, VK2DKE has died. Here he is in his wonderful under house workshop.
Dave lived at Tascott, in mid-NSW and I visited on a few occasions. Dave would catch the train down to Sydney where another mate of Mal's, Merv Sinden and I would meet up at one of the clubs for a few hours of beer tasting and interesting talk.
When Mal was about, there was a regular sked on 20m where they would talk with old friends in New Zealand.
A few pictures of Dave.
