Paul Neveu, JR (W1CKA)

September 1, 20012

Good friend and big DXer, Paul was called to the big Honour Roll in the sky. He was always there, willing to help a QRPer, get that NEW ONE. I learned a lot from Paul about how to read a pile up and to tune for DX. A surveyor buy profession, he was always willing to help us new guys to get that new tower plumbed and the beam pointed correctly. 73 Old Timer you will be missed!
