ARLX009 Grant L. "Don" Carlson, KQ6FM (SK)

ARRL Life Member and Public Relations Committee Member Don Carlson, KQ6FM, of Sparks, Nevada, died June 21, of complications related to pancreatic cancer. He was 60.

Don was an active radio amateur and commercial radio broadcaster, known as "Don Murray" during his days at Nevada and California radio stations, where he usually hosted oldies and jazz shows. He ran a broadcast production business, The Voice Shop, and did commercial voice-over work for radio and television, including for ARRL national radio and TV public service announcements.

Carlson served as District Emergency Coordinator for Nevada's Northwest District, as well as Assistant Section Emergency Coordinator, Section Emergency Coordinator, Public Information Coordinator and Assistant Section Manager. In California he had served as Santa Clara Valley SEC and as an Assistant Section Manager, and as District Emergency Coordinator for Monterey County.

His voice occasionally was heard on Amateur Radio Newsline, the weekly ham radio news webcast. In 2010 the ARRL Pacific Division recognized his contributions to Amateur Radio by naming him "Ham of the Year" at Pacificon. Carlson also served on the board of directors for EMCOMMWEST, an annual ARRL specialty convention held in Reno.

A celebration of life for Don Carlson will be held June 29, 10 AM, at Sierra Bible Church, 3195 Everett Dr, Reno, Nevada. The family requests that cards be mailed to Sierra Bible Church and memorial donations made to a church or other charitable donation "to help someone less fortunate than yourself."
