Harry Lowe G2HPF - Silent Key
1923  -  5-Jan-1997 , Age 73

It is with great sadness that we record the passing of Harry Lowe, G2HPF who died peacefully at home on Sunday 5th January, at the age of 73 years.

Born in Norfolk, the son of a clergyman, Harry soon became interested in radio communication and as well as the long service he gave to Marconi's as an installation engineer for projects as far apart as Malaya, Hong Kong, Germany and the UK, he also enjoyed his involvement in Amateur Radio.

Harry's contributions to our Society cover many years, particularly in committees and field days where his knowledge as a First Class CW Operator provided not only valuable scoring but an inspiration to others to follow in the noble art.

In addition, Harry developed a deep understanding of computer programming from which he designed a very comprehensive logging system to record the large number of QSO's and QSL's accumulated from operating all the HF bands.

Music also gave Harry a great deal of pleasure, particularly in playing the electronic organ, a fine example of which he owned. A message of condolence, on behalf of Society members was sent to Harry's wife Margaret and family.

He will be missed by all who had the good fortune to know him, especially for his daily presence on the 21 Net and the Tuesday evening 10 metre Club Nets.
