CRIT HARLEY (K4BXN)
FEB. 10, 2014
Always in good health, Crit passed over
a three month period from HLH [Google
it] Prev AB4KQ, he was a kind and
compassionate man, always in a good mood
and quick with a joke or quip. He loved
CW and made contacts just for the fun of
the contact. Definitely wasn't into
paper chasing or contesting. He was an
MD as well, but you wouldn't know it by
the way he acted and lived, or by his
house. Also known as Critter, he was my
Elmer, getting me started with the gift
of a G5RV antenna, complete with ladder
line. I think secretly he was jealous
that I had many tall oak trees on my
property to string it up in [65feet up].
He unfortunately lived in the city and
couldn't put up anything other than a
vertical or yagi. With his encouragement
, I started with an Icom 735, and made
ssb contacts all over the world. I have
made the resolution to learn CW in his
memory. His wise advise and quiet
guidance will be sorely missed by me,
and especially his wife. Rest well, my

I worked Crit several times on cw over the years, we
always had nice chats about gear, ham radio in general
and cw specifically. He will be missed.
