DJ9KRIt is with great sadness that we report the death of Ulrich Bihlmayer, DJ9KR, who passed away on 16 December 2017 after a long illness. Uli served in the DARC Bandwacht for 45 years of which 26 years as Coordinator. At the 2005 IARU Region 1 General Conference Uli was appointed deputy coordinator of the lARU Region 1 Monitoring System. Together with IARUMS coordinator Wolfgang Hadel DK2OM, he led a team that grew from 5 to 24 members. Being a polyglot, Uli specialised in broadcast intruders and pirates on telephony.  Uli was presented the IARU Region 1 medal in 2011 before he stepped down from the IARU Region 1 Monitoring System in 2012. Our thoughts are with his family at this sad time.
