P1050870 002

The 2017 Region 1 Conference agreed the award of the Roy Stevens, G2BVN, memorial trophy to Colin Thomas, G3PSM. The Trophy was formally presented to Colin by Region 1 President Don Beattie, G3BJ, at the RSGB 2018 AGM held in Birmingham on 21st April. In making the presentation, Don outlined Colin’s contributions to Amateur Radio, particularly with IARU in CEPT and ITU over several decades, as well as his extensive work with RSGB. In reply Colin recalled that one of his early mentors was Roy Stevens, who had guided him in his early years in international amateur radio forums. The award therefore had a particular resonance for him.

Only eleven G2BVN Memorial Trophies have been awarded since its inception some 35 years ago.
