Steve, G4EDG passes on the following sad news:

“It was with great sadness that I received news from Ulrika, SM6WYN that her father Nils, SM6CAS had passed away on the 24th May. Nils was the driving force behind the 1999 “Double Trouble” DXpedition (T31T, ZK3CW), the 2011 T32 Southern Line island operation which activated four new IOTAs as well as being involved in the organisation of the 2017 S21 DXpedition that activated two new IOTAs. I was privileged to have operated on all three of these well organised, relatively low budget “old school” operations. Nils also operated from other Pacific islands including T33, V63 and Conway reef. Please take a moment to remember Nils and his fine efforts in activating these rare Pacific islands”.
