    I knew Harry well. W4PVA was an active member of the Virginia Sideband Net for a number of years and was always present at public service activities. He was often the voice of the Manassas Hamfest, making announcements and giving on-air directions to the hamfest via talkin on the local repeater. WB4FDT
