Jack Churchill (W3USW)
I am proud to say that Jack was my
elmer. A crusty, retired Navy
Commander, Jack administered my
novice exam and gave me my 5 wpm
code test in 1962 while I was in
junior high school. Later, when I had
assembled a Lafayette receiver kit
and it refused to work, he took the
time to sit down with me at his work
bench and go over the assembly
instructions, point by point until we
found and repaired my many wiring
errors. He had the quintessential rig
in those days: a Collins 75A3, 32V2,
D-104, and a 4-element plummer's
delight 10 meter Yagi. He lived on the
very top of a hill in Woodlawn, Md.
while I lived down the hill. He could
hear and work stations on 10 meters
AM that were not even a whisper at
my QTH. I was in awe of this ham
operator. Jack was a ham's ham
and I shall never forget him and his
gift to me.
