WB6CMI also known as Dl3GY, or Martin went silent in 1995. He came to the states after WW2 where he worked at Karr Electronics in Palo Alto California. I met Martin on 10 mtrs ssb, and after a short Qso we found out that he was from my home town in Germany and was good friends with my grandparents. Goes to show you what a small world it really is. Martin left me his TS940s, with the stipulation that the CW button stays active. Martin you are missed and I still listen on CW for WB6CMI.
