Rod Newkirk (W9BRD)


Nov 19 201`2


Tho I never met Rod personally, we did have an exchange of communications in the 1960's. I started reading his DX columns in QST in the 1950's and continued until they were discontinued in the 1970's. Always an enjoyable read. I still miss an essential part of QST that he contributed. My condolences to Rod's family.

I was first licensed in 1960 as WN4AZR and am now WU5T/DJ0RD. I have always looked forward to his columns over the many years, and of course the standard greeting to a HAM friend is still "How's DX". We miss all the good guys. Vy 73 de Bob DJ0RD/WU5T
