This was picked up off of the DX-Chat reflector. A sobering reminder
that working on towers and antennas CAN be dangerous. We should keep
that in mind at all times when planning or working on our
73 de Bill
Don't know how many of you had the honor to work W7IX but young Ron was
working on a 170 foot tower today when it broke in the middle...
Ron is now SK...
I received a phone call from his dad this evening who was helping him take a
huge 40 meter yagi off the top when the tower just broke.
Ron was DXCC Honor Roll CW and he will be missed by all that knew him.
