Alice Braley (WB1GFM)
July 20, 2010
Alice & her husband Wes printed a batch of
QSL's for me in 1977..... They both became
hams. Wes lost interest but Alice loved CW and
would operate for years with a cigarette and
the TV blasting copying in her head. She never
upgaded and was happy to renew her novice
license and operate in the novice bands.

I ran across an old card of Alice's this
morning. It brought back good memories of my
very early days of being a novice. I would
have been 12 or so when I first met Alice.
Alice and I would spend hours talking on 80
meter cw. She was a really cool person. She
had several cards one of which was her
Police bike and another of her in uniform on
an Automatic Suzuki motorcycle. I googled
her callsign and saw her license still
active and was going to look her up.
Disappointed to see she passed. RIP Alice
