I remember Milt from the First Regional Net (1RN) and the Eastern Area Net (EAN) with a big, beautiful signal. His helpfulness was matched by the beautiful tone of his signal, his transmitter had a very sweet sound, and his keying was soulful, the sound of a Hallicrafters HT-32B - one of the finest sounds ever heard. The Drake radios had that sound also.
Milt touched many who worked him, and often he would follow up through the years with a personal radiogram to you.
A class act.
73 and I'm glad you've earned your "Solid Gold Vibroplex" - you certainly deserve it.
