    I was going through some videos from the past few years, and I was reminded of the several contacts from a true gentleman who elmered me a bit, from afar -- W6CCP.

    This is a great hobby, but it's also a real downer to have to lose special people.

    Please name someone you really miss chatting with on the airwaves.

    There are several and the list is growing longer. It's just a fact of life that as we go along that such a list is formed.

    There is a Silent Key forum here too.

    My First Contact was with NY2U Bill Eddy, he was the President of the Troy, NY Amateur Radio Association TARA,
    and when I had my first QSO with "Mr. Bill" he said you have found the best repeater in the area, super glue the knob to keep it here. :)

    He was a remarkable Gent and is missed by many folks.

    Many others that are now SK that I miss, and I have only been in the hobby 11 years.

    The Old Man himself, W1AW. We need his "Rotten xxx" articles in QST again, not the crap that lesser mortals like Gallagher have been churning out recently.
