From Boa Vista-RR-Brazil A huge loss for all of us! Mr. Clovis Alencar has passed away, today March, 17th 2019. The brazilian amateur radio community loses one of its greatest representatives. He will be missed. Mr. Clovis crashed when he fell from one of his towers, designed and built by himself. At eighty, he had no more strength in legs to climb the towers, so he drew a "chair" pulled by a steel cable. The accident happened in another structure, similar to the chair, when Mr. Clovis was painting the tower, after the break of the cable. Mr. Clovis was assiduous CW operator. Every day he was present in the pile-up.
