Herbert Snell (W2FCH)


August 6, 1999


Herb passed away in the Central Suffolk Hospital in Riverhead, NY on Long Island. He was 86 and got his call in 1929 and never changed it. He was 100 percent a CW man and loved to use his old "Bat Key" on the air. He would spend a lot of time just "reading the mail" but if you were a friend of his, in QSO he might jump in with his "HI HI" to let you know he was around. Herb is missed by everyone who knew him either on the air or by those who weren't hams. He loved to tell stories about the old days and his mind was sharp and remembered every date. Herb Snell, great ham, great guy.
