Milt was an outstanding 160 meter operator. I first ran into him when KB5UL talked him into the CQ 160 Contest in the early 1990's. Milt got on and worked so many be beat out UL for New Mexico High Score.
He was counted on to bring in a big score from NM and from his club station just over the boarder in AZ. We both liked the Yaesu FT-980 back then. His VP6 160 operation several years ago made a big splash on top band.
Milt maintained several repeaters mainly across AZ.
RIP Milt you will be missed.
