The passing of time...CW and satellites

In the realm of CW...

It is much regret that I received an email of the passing today of George S.
Wilson III W4OYI, former president of the ARRL and staunch supporter of the
value of CW in Amateur communications. If you could send it in CW, he could
receive it...


Note from 2001...

"...U.S. Astronaut Susan Helms KC7NHZ took
the microphone of NA1SS aboard the
International Space Station May 31, 2001 to respond to
questions from students at Daviess County High
School in Owensboro. The contact marked the
15th Amateur Radio on the International Space
Station QSO and the second with a Kentucky

"...The audience of students and guests included
ARRL President Emeritus George S. Wilson III
W4OYI who lives in Owensboro..."
