CTARC Manny Petersen ZR1AE Silent Key - 26 Jul '21

It is with sadness that we must announce the passing of Emmanuel "Manny" Petersen, ZR1AE on 26 July 2021.

Manny was a former member of the CTARC. He was also involved in Hamnet and was particularly active in radio communications for rallies and events. His salt mine activities included working on contracts at Mosgass in Mossel Bay.

We will miss his cheerful "guten morgen!" when coming up on the two-metre repeater frequencies in the mornings,

Manny is survived by his son, daughter and grandson.

Our condolences go to his family and friends.

The Annual General Meeting of the Cape Town Amateur Radio Centre was held at 14h00 on Saturday, 24 July 2021. Owing to the current Coronavirus restrictions at the time, the meeting was held in virtual format on the Jitsi platform. This was the first such AGM for our club to be conducted this way.

 The elections were conducted successfully and the previous Chairman, Rob ZS1SA was re-elected for another year. The Committee was also re-elected, with some changes to members' portfolios. The new CTARC COmmittee for 2021/2022 period may be seen [here]. 

 Danny ZS1BL has stepped down from the Committee after some five years of faithful service.

Owing to the virtual nature of the meeting, awards could not be physically handed to the recipients but will be done so at the soonest opportunity.

A fuller report will appear in the next edition of Ragchew.
