    My older brother, Val E. Rose (N8EXV), aged 66 years, died after a 10-month struggle with cancer. Val was an avid fan of HAM radio and he sometimes told me stories of having connected with other operators in distant stations.

    I am not an operator, but I have signed up to this site in the hopes that I might be able to appeal to the community for any specific memories they have of Val. Or, perhaps even just general advice about how an operator would like to be memorialized.

    Feel free to comment here or, if you prefer, to communicate to me off-forum via e-mail (fildpauz@yahoo.com).

    Thank you very much.

    Sincerely,
    Ralph Rose

    Val and I were friends for over 55 years. We were "patrol boys" together at Gundry Elementary School in Flint, Michigan. I was happy with my corner to patrol while Val was the Lieutenant - walking around and ensuring us lowly minions were doing our jobs. Val and I worked together on many projects over the years and had plans for many more. Most of those dreams will go unfulfilled. My advice to all: Carpe Diem - seize the moment. Don't dream... Do!

    Specific memories of Val.

    Harrison's "Main Street USA" comments generated a lively discussion among
    forum participants who offered their own suggestions on how to ensure a
    bright future for Amateur Radio. One Virginia radio amateur suggested that
    public service has become a big draw for newcomers in his rural community.
    Val Rose, N8EXV, of Michigan said rude on-the-air behavior is a deterrent to
    attracting new hams.
