Jim Parsons (K5ROV)
February 25, 2013
Jim Parsons, retired Air Force Chief Master Sargent is now a silent key. Jim, former W1RLA and SV0WN (among many others) was the first station on the air from Crete and Rhodes. So rare were the islands, the Northern California DX Association sent him a Loudenboomer Amp so he could be heard better from the West Coast.
From a personal perspective, next to the term mentor in the Ham Radio dictionary, should be a photograph of Jim Parsons.

I note with great sadness the passing of Jim. Tho I had never met him in person, we
used to have frequent qso's on 40m cw and
on occasion, SSB. We were both in the AF
Security Service at the same time and at
some of the same places - not at the same
time. I will miss our qso time on the '
bands. My condolences to his family.
