    Dick Hart, K0MQS became a silent key Sat. Oct. 26 2013. A memorial service is scheduled for Friday, Nov. 8, 2013 at the Fremont Funeral Chapel in Fremont, IA (ffc@iowatelecom.net) He was 88 years old, and had been ill for several years. Dick became the first Amateur to work all 50 states on two meters in 1975, or 76 when he worked KH6NS, also SK, off the moon (EME) for state # 50. Dick accomplished this feat with fixed antenna's for 144, the best of which were 100 wavelength rhombic's pointed at the Northern most declination of the setting moon.
