We learned this morning that Rev. Dobbs passed away in the wee hours, at home and with his family near.  George was a long time member of the QRP ARCI, and a frequent speaker during the many Four Days in May symposiums.  George was also the founder of the G-QRP club in Great Britain, and was active with the RSGB as a contributor to many books and articles throughout the years.

George designed the world famous "Sudden Receiver" in 1989 and it was featured at FDIM 2009 as the Buildathon project, and it is still sold in kit form today.   His tales of minimalist radio operations showed us all QRP was incredibly fun, and rewarding. 

George was the long time editor of Sprat magazine, the newsletter of the G-QRP and it was always full of minimalist projects suitable for the beginner or the advanced builder.  A member of the QRP ARCI QRP Hall of Fame and member 4180, he will be missed by the global QRP community. 

He taught us about Occum's Razor, and the meaning of the word "pelf".
