Jim Maxwell (W6CF)

February 6, 2003

From W6RGG: Date: Thu, 6 Feb 2003 20:32:14 -0800 Subject: [NCCC] Jim Maxwell, W6CF SK It is with great sadness that I report on the passing of my old and good friend, Jim Maxwell, W6CF. Jim was a charter member of the NCCC and was "The JUG's" first editor, it having been Jim that came up with the name and the little brown jug logo. His issues bore the subtitle "Uncorked Occasionally For The Northern California Contest Club." I've known Jim for more than 40 years, operated contests with him, and shared many a good time, too. Jim's wit and wisdom will be sorely missed at gatherings like Dayton, Friedrichshafen, Visalia, and ARRL Board meetings; not to mention the countless clubs at which he spoke while serving as Vice-Director, and Director, of the ARRL Pacific Division. He was a good friend, and I'll miss him so very much. I hope he enjoys getting to meet Samuel F. B. Morse at the big radio gathering in the sky. 73, Jim. You'll be gone, but not forgotten by your many friends. Bob -- W6RGG
