Does anyone know anything about a blind young ham, Hal Claypool, who operated using the call W8KLD in the late 1950s or early 1960s? I have a 1959 Callbook and there's no W8KLD in it. I think Hal was pretty well known among eastern Ohio and western Pennsylvania Novices. He had a guide dog named Rinny.

He is listed in the Callbooks of the mid 1950s:

Harold R. Claypoole
1003 Brad Ave
Canton, OH

and

RFD 5
Hillsboro, OH

If you google "Harold R. Claypoole" you will find more info and KB8PVK, possibly his son (?).

Thanks! That looks good. He was about 21 when I knew him (several years older than me) so the 1938 birth date shown in some of the Google links sounds right. I'll see if I can make contact with KB8PVK.
