Myron Hexter (W9FKC)


August 4, 1999


Noted veteran DXer Myron "Mike" Hexter, W9FKC, of Highland Park, Illinois, died August 4. He was 91. First licensed at age 15, Hexter was an ARRL member for 62 years and a charter member of W9DXCC. He had 378 DXCC entities confirmed. Hexter also wrote two articles for QST during the 1950s. One described a compact, portable 40-meter transceiver; the other detailed the construction of a set of paddles for an electronic keyer--constructed by mating two straight keys in a vertical orientation. W9FKC was an avid CW operator and a long-time member of the FOC. He was a founding member of a number of Chicago area amateur radio clubs. His wife, Lucille, three daughters, grandchildren and great-grandchildren survive.
