Thomas A. Korycki (KC8QGJ)

March 5, 2015

Thomas was an avid Ham operator (KC8QGJ). He was a member of St. Maryís Church in Chardon, a member of Laborerís Local 860, of 1721 Ragchew and of the 160 Club of Ham Operators. He was an avid train collector who also enjoyed fishing for walleye and perch and camping.

We will miss Tom on the air and at the annual "K2P" Kring Point State Park ham gathering. Thanks Tom for starting this tradition. I hope we can keep it going for a long time.

Tom for a number of years was the control station for the 1721 net on 1.871 Mhz. He was very welcoming and introduced me to a friendly group of hams. He organized a social get together at the KOA campground during Dayton and kindly set up a pup tent for me so I stay overnight.

"Chardon Tom" "Worlds friendliest ham" Hamvention won't be the same without you. KOA campground will seem empty without the "Master of Ceremonies" "KC8QG and a J" 73 OM and happy fishin from WG8Zulu
