    Jim Allen, W6OGC, passed peacefully last Friday at his Texas home following a lengthy illness. Even when his health curtailed his own operations, Jim was always willing to offer invaluable advice, insight, and encouragement to others in the hobby. He was a longtime and skilled DX operator and once co-published a compilation of the West Coast DX Bulletin's issues after that publication was no more. Jim was a man of many and diverse talents, interests and accomplishments-- a Navy officer, att0rney, successful businessman, musician and a licensed Ham since the 1950s-- and a profoundly thoughtful, kind, and unassuming gentleman.

    Although my own contact with him was brief, Jim's encouragement and advice was a major source of my interest in the hobby. I suspect that legions of others can make the same claim.
