    Angelo, W8ERN, Brighton, Michigan. Friendly, gracious, great conversationalist, long-time ham. I miss hearing his booming signal on 40 meter SSB.

    Funny you should mention Seymour W6CCP. What a nice guy, he was one of the first hams I met when I moved to southern California. And of course hard to miss that HUGE signal from his enormous 20m beam on a prominent hilltop. I think he's missed by a lot of people.

    For me, I miss hams from whom I learned a lot as a kid: W2AZL, W2KME and W2WCF mostly, plus old buddy WA2ACJ who was willing to "drive me around" so I could go hilltopping on VHF way before I was old enough to drive; and college prof WA2GCM who made learning some very complex things much easier.

    Thanks for posting that I will add my Dad to it. Has this site been promoted via ARRL and other organizations? Seems there needs to be more publicity and even among genealogy magazines, sites.
