Late Breaking News from the ARRL Letter:

Allen B. Harbach, WA4DRU, SK: The man who had made life a bit easier for
fans of vintage Heath gear, Al Harbach, WA4DRU, of Melbourne, Florida, died
August 15. He was 73. He was a Life Member of ARRL and had authored several
items that appeared in QST. A native of Orchard Park, New York, and an
engineer, Harbach was first licensed in 1948 as W2YNI. In more recent years,
he became known to many as "Mr Heathkit" and a source of parts and
information about Heath amateur gear. A longstanding member of the North
Florida DX Association, Harbach was a prominent DXer, DXpeditioner and DXCC
Honor Roll member with 351 entities. His contesting experience using SB-200s
and SB-220s led him to design several modifications to those amplifiers that
he offered as products. He also sold antenna hardware. Survivors include his
wife, Pat. DX Engineering <> has taken over
Harbach's antenna hardware business. Jeff Weinberg, W8CQ, has assumed
operation of Harbach Electronics <>.
