Greetings,

My Uncle Jim lost his fight with Pancreatic Cancer this past week.  He was a great man with many accomplishments, one of which was he was a ham I believe in the 1950s or 1960s.  I never knew he was a ham until I told him I recently got my license.  Unfortunately, he could not remember his callsign and I have been unable to find it.

If anyone had a QSO with a James Kane from Michigan, please let me know.  I would love to find his old callsign.

thank you for reading this.

73,

John

Hi John. I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your Uncle Jim. I found a:

WA8LAQ - Technician Class
James M. Kane, Jr.
1842 Ditty Rd
Smiths Creek, Mi.
This was from the 1960's Callbooks

Just in case, there was a:
WN8IKE
James K. Kane
6531 Swartout Rd
Algonac, MI 48001
This was a listing in the early 1970's Callbook

I hope that this info helps you out.

Mike,

Thank you very much for your effort, you nailed it!  My Uncle Jim was WA8LAQ.  Thanks for the condolences.  My Uncle Jim was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer over six years ago and finally lost the battle this past week.  Sadly, we didn't become close until after his diagnosis but I learned he was a fascinating man who accomplished a lot in his lifetime.  He'll be missed.
