    I’m sorry to read that your friend has died. That’s way too young.

    What bands was he on?


  2. He liked HF, but while he was in Pittsburgh, he only had 2m setup, I remember helping him program his radio. When he got on he would go on the 147.03 repeater. When I meet him it was not via ham radio, it was though the Pittsburgh Lutheran Center for the Blind, he and his wife would come the the monthy dinners the PLCB would have, and I worked at those at times, that is how we meet. Back when I had a car, and before I got my current job, I would hang with him a bit. He and I joined the W3KWH club (SCARC). He was a good person, he would tease me at times since I am only a NCT. Agreed that 51 is way to young (heck my dad is older then that)
