    I called Elthel Gross, Al W8PAL xyl,
    explained I didn't quite know what to say,
    except that I talked with Al on the phone,
    and via e-mail a couple of times.




    I became aware of his achievements and his history
    after looking up his call sign on QRZ.....
    I said meeting him was like meeting Marconi himself.
    Al was a real live hero, there are so few anymore...


    Through our chats and e-mail, Al ( at my request) sent me
    an autographed photo of himself.
    It hangs over my ham station still today, and always will...



    Please take a few moments to see who Al was,
    then drop his wife a letter or card.
    We lost a hero, she lost her husband...




    Thanks,

    Dan KB7UXE
