W Max Adams (W5PFG)

Max was an "elmer" to the true sense of the ham radio world meaning. He was instrumental in the development of my operating practices on the air. Not only did he provide me with his expertise, he offered me a Ringo he wasn't using and a 12 volt power supply so that I can run my HT without being limited to battery power. I'll always remember his uncanny ability to relate phrases to callsigns. He was the first to label my call "Two buttoned-britches" or my mother KC5JHK "Jack's House Keeper" (dad's name is Jack/AC5DI. I'll always remember the guy we used to "meet for Chinese buffet."

Hardcore CW operators used to be able to recognize someone by their "fist". But I remember Max by the way he pronounced his call "dub-five-piff-gee"
