Bill Winscott (N6CHA)
Wonderful, wonderful man, who was on the convoys in the North Atlantic in WW2, as well as all over the Pacific as we went after Japan. He was aboard a large cargo ship that was taking K-rations to Okinawa for the invasion of Japan. He was a quality control expert for Douglas Aircraft. Bill was as gentle as the day is long. We met about 7 years ago, and he has been a surrogate Father to me. He was a man's man and I will miss him dearly.

Definitely an "old school" gentleman - he exemplified "The Amateur's Code" originally written in 1928 by Paul M. Segal, W9EEA.

Bill and I shared many conversations including an interest in Ten Tec gear. Sometimes after a net check in, he would call me long distance and we would have good long visits. I'm sad to see he's SK. He was a very nice man. Todd - KT0DD
