Thanks for conveying the sad news, Ian (using GI8AYZ) & I (using G8BQO) had many qso's on 432 Mhz (70 cms) in the early 1970's during his many portable outings using AM & later years using SSB etc.
He will be missed.

I was saddened to read the following news on the AMSAT reflector today.
Ian was an true LF enthusiast with a presence on both 136 and 73kHz.  I'm sure we will miss his unique humour and contributions to this reflector and his signals from the LF bands.

From RSGB News
Ground-breaking RSGB President, Ian Kyle, Silent  Key
Ian Kyle, GI8AYZ and MI0AYZ, the RSGB President in 1997 and 1998, died 
peacefully at home on Friday the 23rd of July after a long illness. Ian was a 
long-serving RSGB volunteer. Joining the Society in 1967, he served as a  regional
representative, Zonal Council member, Chairman of the Membership  Liaison
Committee and long-standing GB2RS newsreader and manager. In total Ian  served
for a period of 10 years on the Council.

A quiet, but persuasive, man, Ian will be remembered as the President  who
during his term in office presided over the RSGB change of policy not to 
support compulsory Morse testing and for starting the negotiations with the RA - 
now Ofcom - which led to the introduction of the Foundation licence. Ian was a 
great supporter and friend of amateur radio in his native Northern Ireland and
across the UK, and was well respected around the world. He will be sadly
missed  by all those who worked with him and operated with him on the bands.
