In fond memory of Alistair Campbell ZS5MU

Photobucket

Alistair passed away peacefully in his sleep on afternoon 14th February 2011.
Alistair's interest in marine matters started many years ago when Alistair helped a friend build a yacht.
Once the yacht was completed and on the water they kept in contact via ham radio, with Alistair giving him the weather conditions.
It wasn't long before other yachts started checking in with Alistair and the South African Maritime Mobile Net was born round about 26 October 1979.
With Davina ZS5GC his loving wife at Alistair's side they devoted them selves tirelessly to the building up of the South African Maritime Mobile Net, which is now internationally renowned and held in high regard in the yachting fraternity. Our deepest sympathy to Davina and family. Alistair will never be forgotten.
Samuel Maree, ZS1SAM, is now controlling the net assisted by Graham Griggs, ZS2ABK.
