James "Jimmy" Stewart (W2PIG)


Jimmy, W2PIG (ex-KB3WC) was a true friend and a great person to know. When I upgraded from Novice to Technician Plus, and purchased a 2m HT to finally "talk to the locals", Jimmy was one of the first people that I talked with. He was always very calm and reserved, and I consider him as one of my first elmers. Shortly after making his acquaintance on the air, he invited me to his home, where he gave me some extra "stuff" he had laying around...a 2m dipole, a 12V power supply that he had made (which I still have), his worn-out Ten-Tec PM-1 (which I restored), and even a wooden plaque with MY callsign on it, that he had made in his spare time. My son has that plaque in his bedroom. Jimmy will always be remembered for his kindness and his gentle, albeit sarcastic telling me he had to turn his Ringo Ranger to hear me better...and as a rookie, I fell for it. He had the best laugh out of that joke. Miss you, Jim. Thanks for being a friend.
