It is with great sadness that I report the passing of our dear friend, 
Hillar Raamat, N6HR (ex - K2ALE, WA6HRS, ZD8HR, etc).

Hil passed away Sunday morning, shortly after operating the 7 QSO party with 
his wife Elsie.  He was 74 years young.

Hil was originally from Estonia, immigrated to the USA after WW2, and became 
a very successful engineer in the defense business, and a real estate 

He made many operations from DX places like Marshall Islands, Ascension 
Island, and he was found active in many contests over the years. He was a 
member of the Northern California DX Club, Northern California Contest Club, 
and undoubtedly others.  A gentle giant of a man, you could always count on 
Hillar to put a smile on the faces of whomever he met.

He will be sorely missed.

Elsie said, per his wishes, there will be no services.

RIP, Hillar
