Paul Rogers (AC4V)

1 May 2011

F.Paul Rogers was my best friend. He was an intelligence operative in Pacific during WWII. His knowledge of communications and electronics was immesurable. Paul was very proficient in morse code from his military days. I got him interested in the hobby around 1979 and then he tested out and got his Extra callsign and spent many many Saturdays meeting friends online via a net that he and a couple of my other friends started called the Bellringers. The net consisted mostly hams who worked for or were associated with AT&T and South Central Bell in and around the Birmingham Alabama area. It has not spread all over the US and is still active each Saturday at 9AM on 7233. Pauls son Richard has picked up the call from his dad and is still carrying on our tradition of sharing our world with our friends and families from the ham radio ranks.
