Because I was inactive on HF for most of the last 18 years, I didn't
get to know Bill, and worked him only a few times since my return in a
contests. But because Bill was such an active supporter of ham radio, I
know OF Bill and his work. By supporting the contesting.com website and
reflectors, Bill had a huge, and very positive impact on ham radio. He
was a great ham in the best traditions of our hobby -- he unselfishly
gave back far more to our hobby, and to the professional growth of hams
who frequent his reflectors, than he got.
There are not many folks of whom it may be said that we are all richer
because they walked this earth, but it can certainly be said of Bill.
73 OM and many thanks,
