Bob was an Elmer to me too. I met him
when I was 15 years old. He lived in
Kensington on a hilltop bordering Tilden
Park, and had built a UHF repeater with
old KAAR tube equipment. This was around
1971 when repeaters were relatively new to
amateurs and most were on 2 meters. He had
that modified repeater sounding hi-fi with
his custom audio circuit!
Bob was also an early adopter of digital
electronics and was a real doer when it
came to putting his ideas into a finished
project. Bob was always very patient and
enjoyed explaining technical things in a
way that could be understood by a Novice!
I had a lot of "Aha!" moments while Bob
showed his latest projects.
Thanks to Bob's encouragement and making
radio/electronics interesting to a
youngster, amateur radio has been a
lifelong hobby for me as well as provided
me with a foundation for an interesting
We need more mentors like Bob in this
hobby. Bob recognized that the future is
with our youth. 73 to you “K 6 John Henry
