Arnold H. Rand (W2NYU)

March 7, 2009

Randy was a real pioneer and is remembered for his passion for electronics from the days of vacuum tubes to transistors to digital systems. He was in the US Army Signal Corps in the late 40s. He worked for NBC in the early days of TV thru the late 80s. He was a legend in this regard. His friendship and expertise will be sorely missed. AR 73 Rod KA1RFD
