Sorry to hear of Paul's passing.  I did not know him, but being nearly
"right next door" ~175miles away , I would often would work him (or someone
operating there) on the low bands.

I'll miss that big signal from a Maine neighbour.


RIP Paul,

Paul Obert, K8PO, passed yesterday.  


After a long run of cancer remission and despite a brief ray of hope in

early September he had continued downward the last few weeks until a

mercifully peaceful passing.  


I'd gotten to know Paul well in the last few years as a guest operator at

his Maine station.  He was a true gentleman, thoughtful and of high

integrity.  In many ways he was a man without guile.  He was a perfectionist

in the quantitative areas of life - engineering a superb station - while

gracious, generous and unassuming in the personal realm.  He was quick to

praise others and recognize their skills. 


He will be deeply missed.


Scott, K0DQ
