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.
