Hydrogen in a dilute SiGe alloy is considered theoretically in comparison with hydrogen in Si and Ge. Structural, vibrational and electronic properties of crystalline alloys containing {\sim } 1.6 at.% Ge complexed with single hydrogen atoms are considered. The behaviour of bond-centred hydrogen is found to be weakly perturbed, when compared to hydrogen in pure Si.
