Many hams have given so very much to our hobby. In their passing, it seems unfair to only remember them with a simple callsign listing in the pages of QST or a quick note in a club newsletter. We hope to provide a method by which you can remember amateur radio operators that have contributed to our hobby.

Was always a great contact and spent a lot of time on 14.185 every morning. We will miss him a lot.
I never had the pleasure to meet Ray in person but talked with him many times on 40 and 20 and even bought a couple of tuner's from him. Great guy and wealth of knowledge. We all will miss his voice and strong signal from Ca. The hobby has lost another good Ham. W6ZR and W6CCP were always fun to talk with and learn from these two big gun's. 73's Ray RIP.. Bob W5RG
Knew Ray for over twenty years and was the most gracious person on the 14.185 group. Always a big signal with his Quaggi antenna.
Ray's wit and humor will be missed.
Ray and I met on 40 meters. We had in common that we were both ex Navy Vets and old dudes from the Korean era service. Ray knew much about a lot and always was there for advice I
needed for my homebrew antenna projects. I miss Ray and his big moxon/Quagi antenna with a booming signal and pleasant qsos. I will miss Ray very much.
A prominent Turkish amateur, TA3D Yasar, will be missed by the TA amateur radio community

Ian had driven bus for Grays Harbor
Transit for over 25 years. He enjoyed
sports and enjoyed collecting sports
memorabilia. Ian also loved being a
licensed HAM radio operator. In over
30 years, he had spoken with people
from every continent and all IOTAs. He
was a member of ARRL (American Radio
Relay League). He was a good friend
and made me feel welcome when I first
moved to Ocean Shores.
Ed kept the local vhf repeaters busy every morning on his commutes from the various medical facilities on his route. Ed not only held a doctoral degree in nursing, but recently became an attorney. He was a tireless worker always seeking information and learning endlessly. One of the good guys, Ed was a recent ham with a great attitude and a gift to all who met him. He loved his family and spoke with great affection of them on the air during every QSO. We will miss him.
LARRY WAS "THE BIG GUN" FROM WATERBORO MAINE. HE WILL BE MISSED BY ALL THOSE THAT KNEW HIM.
WE WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER OUR DEAR FRIEND LARRY... WB1CIM....."THE BIG GUN" FROM WATERBORO MAINE.
LARRY loved ham radio, each day he hosted a net at
8:15 am on 3.913 MHz and then again on 1.860 during
winters, and 3.860 during the summers. His daughter
and son told me at his wake, that his very last words
were “ This is WB1CIM Waterboro Maine”. He served in
WWll, was a member of the Knight of Columbus, and
was active in his church during his life time. It was an
honor to know LARRY!.

Gene was one of those who never met a stranger. An avid CW operator, tried many of the modes available to us. Gene was proud of the times he spent as net control on 80 mtr CW.
Gene was an outdoorsman. Spent many years hunting and fishing with his sons and his XYL, Jo. He also toured much of the US on his beloved Honda Goldwing. RC modeling also was a favorite hobby.
I met Rich in the mid-70's while in High School. He was part of the 40 Meter Combat Zone crowd that was so much fun. Rich was a great technical resource and helped countless hams with their amplifier projects. Rich wrote articles for QST Magazine and contributed to numerous technical forums on the Internet. He was extremely patient with those seeking knowledge and helped to develop the next generation of radio amateurs. I will miss his friendship, wisdom and passion for truth.
|David R. Collingham|
My old pal Dave Collingham passed away this January. I met Dave in High School back in the mid-70's and got him into Amateur Radio. We had many great adventures together over the years and I very much enjoyed keeping up on his DXpeditions around the world. Dave was a loving father with a kind and tender heart. He worked tirelessly to give back to Amateur a measure of the joy and pleasure it had brought to him. The world is an emptier place with his absence -- he will be sorely missed.
Louis P. Malory, WA6DVK has passed away. We met in the mid 1960's and he helped me get my Novice Class License. He was one of my favorite high school teachers. Lou loved amateur radio and was a ham for nearly 70 years. A great friend and inspiration, he was always kind and ready to share his knowledge. I sure will miss that guy.
One of the nicest hams I have ever met.
Henry was my elmer and a first rate cw op. We were
friends for more than forty years and without his help
I'm not sure I've have ever made it into ham radio alone.
Thanks Henry for the hobby and the friendship. Much

I met Ray about 10-yrs ago. He was my friend
& mentor I loved listening to him & lifetime
friend Dave (WA4AIW) talk about their days in
the Coast Guard. Ray loved restoring old
equipment, when you walked into his shop, you
would go on a trip back in radio history. I
am so proud his son Matt is following in his
footsteps. I will also miss Ray Cook!!
Always remember Ray as one willing to help with the hobby.
I have known Dan for about 30 years or longer. I would hear him on 2m FM coming home from work and he would conversing in CW with another ham while talking to me!(he had a strap on leg key). He had been sick off and on since being retired in the early 2000's.
To build the largest and most complete Amateur Radio community site on the Internet. A "portal" that hams think of as the first place to go for information, to exchange ideas, and be part of what’s happening with ham radio on the Internet. eHam.net provides recognition and enjoyment to the people who use, contribute, and build the site.
This project involves a management team of volunteers who each take a topic of interest and manage it with passion. The site will stand above all other ham radio sites by employing the latest technology and professional design/programming standards, developed by a team of community programmers who contribute their skills to the effort. The site will be something that everyone involved can be proud to say they were a part of.
The eHam.net Team, Revision 10/99.
