    Word is that he was dying not too pay them.That's the former holder everyone knew as Baxter. It also shows the high standards of the ARRL & another reason I have not & will not renew my membership at any price.I won't miss the 70 plus pages of ads each month since I have an HRO & DX Engineering Catalog for shopping purposes.The ARRL is a waste of time & money.

    Reports of this ham's death might be just a bit premature: https://www.qrz.com/db/W4BHV

    At least he isn't listed as SK on QRZ.

    Flush twice so they don't pop back up in the bowl.

    There are a few sources out there that have said Tolassi went SK approximately last September, due to a Cancer related disease. One of those ham sources stated they stopped by the address listed and Tolassi's wife told the ham that David passed away last fall. Other sources say he moved from the listed QTH address to a location in SC, without updating his address with the FCC.

    Now, unless his wife is covering for him or she hasn't notified the FCC he is SK and he went "off the grid," I certainly have not heard him active in a while on a certain HF frequency. In that case, I would tend to give some credence to him taking that permanent dirt nap. This also brings up the question of how quickly QRZ admin updates the statuses of the BANNED users who may have departed this life.

    You automatically become banned when you pass away. :eek:

    If I can not find an Obituary I normally will Not change the Status of a Call Sign to Silent Key.

    Send me an email of the Obit. Please.

    If I find one, I will get it to you. I am focusing on Georgia and SC for obituaries...

    Now just two more American lids to go and 20m will be much quieter.. one just got sued by the FCC for not paying his fine.

    On the big fines it sure appears the FCC is not backing down.
