I never had face to face QSO with Bob, but he was W1AW's official 1 man welcoming committee! If you keyed up the repeater, sure enough he would be there! Bob was also my first contact after getting my ticket in December. And I used to listen to him on the scanner before I was licensed. I will miss our brief QSO's in the early morning BOB! You will be missed by all in the the Newington/Hartford region and beyond. KA1QVF, this is W1VVK 73's my friend!
