Joe Infranca (W2LED)
When I received my HF ticket I jumped into my
fathers QSO group. There was Walter,Richie, Joe my
father Neil and myself from time to time. Time
moved on and things changed as the group slowly
fell apart. From restrictions at new homes to bad
health. Joe (W2LED) still kept intouch with my Dad
by phone as he had taken his antenna down while
selling his home. Joe had two Kenwood 830s's he
bought at the same time. One for the NY home and
the other for his Vermont summer home. Joe liked
being on the air. The vermont home was sold some
years ago, so the second rig was in the attic. Joe
was in the process of selling his NY home and
wanted to down size the shack equipment. My Dad
and I where looking for a good tube rig and Joe was
willing to part with one. So off to Joe's home we
went in early December. Its funny how meeting Joe
for the first time was like meeting a friend you
known for years. Ham radio just makes it that way.
Joe is a great guy, a real Ham. He work in
electronics for years. Starting out with RCA when
they only had Five tube TV repairman in NY. My Dad
and I spent over two hours in Joe's shack shooting
the breeze. He showed use how to tune the rig
before we left with it. Joe was to close on his NY
home the second week of January and to settle
elseware with his wife Annie. Joe passed away on
new years day. Ham Radio and I will miss you Joe.
God bless you and your family.
