CTARC Tony Baard ZS1APB Silent Key - 24 Dec '20

It is with sadness we must announce that the key of Anthony P Baard ZS1APB went silent early this morning, 24 December 2020, at the Intensive Care Unit of a Cape Town hospital.

While not a current member of CTARC, Tony was well known to many of us in the Cape Town radio amateur community. He took part in the 7P8DX DXpedition to Lesotho along with Shaun ZS1RA and Barry ZS1FJ. He attended several of our monthly CTARC meetings and was a regular call sign (ZS1 "All Points Bulletin") on our call-ins on two metres. He worked in a technical capacity at UCT.

Tony will be sadly missed. Our condolences go to his wife Rene, the rest of his family and his friends.
