Sad to hear this news.
I used to listen to Art on his "coast to coast AM" show on WABC 770 or WOR 710 (can't remember which one) radio in NY when I had trouble sleeping. Always an interesting show. I heard him once on 40 meters, but the pileup was too big for me to break with my measly 100 watts. RIP Art.
I should have sent him a QSL card years ago, now I'll just have to settle for LOTW.
He answered my CQ on 10 meters.
R.I.P Art Bell You will be greatly missed
He's the one to "blame" for my spending the past 18+ years running SETI@Home on computers at home. RIP, Art, you will be missed.
i always wanted to talk to him, either on ham or his radio show, but missed any opportunities, unless he's monitoring this forum from beyond. i suppose i had no chance of speaking to him on ham though, i'm one of those poor hams that can't afford any equipment. RIP Art, i'll be listening to rebroadcast/podcast of your radio shows from time to time, when i have a hankering to listen to the "Legend" (which he hated being called). 73s
I wish I had a recording of Art Bell's interview with Jim Haynie, W5JBP
John,K2FT ,x WN2GWB,WB2GWB here,.I met Art at Dayton in late 1970s. He was an interesting fellow ham .I listened to him on Coast to Coast AM! Sad when he went off air.
He was a visionary for sure! Brilliant man, He talked about his wavelength square loop antennas 80 M and 160 M wow! 160 meters huge structure! RIP Art!
One of the giants of talk radio,in the days of it's infancy.Never knew the varied background of Art's life.
My deepest condolences to Art's family.Art was well ahead of his time,he will now be able to completely
understand the issues he discussed.
Never had the pleasure of working him on the air. Respectfully, Gregory L,Mitchell W2MYA
I started listening to him during some of my all nighter banzai runs and it didnt take me long to realize he was a confirmed nut case.....but entertaining as hell. At least the show kept me awake as it was carried on several AM stations and sure beat the other crap at those hours.
