Subject: [CQ-Contest] KB4HQA in Dayton Hospital ICU

Many of you saw and or met Tom, KB4HQA this weekend in Dayton at the Crowne
Plaza.  He is an awesome guy, a great friend and is a behind the scenes
superstar for contesting. He was the brain power and hardware supplier for
the contest web cam from the Crowne Plaza that many watched who could not
attend Dayton.


On the way to the airport Sunday morning Tom was in a terrible car crash. He
is now in ICU with a broken neck and a broken shoulder. His blood pressure
was critically low yesterday after surgery - so that is why they are keeping
him in ICU. There is no nerve damage. After a long hospital stay and a ton
of rehab - he should be OK. 


I talked to Tom today (he is in tremendous pain) and all he wanted to tell
me was that he is sorry for the delays in getting the video recordings from
the weekend posted for guys to watch. Tom is always thinking of others.


Please keep Tom in your prayers.
