Thanks for the nice email.  I was glad to speak on Bill's behalf and
appreciate the support of SECCers in putting the nomination letter
together and supporting the nomination itself.

I took receipt of the plaque for W4AN from Bob Cox, W3EST.  It will be
forwarded on to Linda, Bill's mother, and eventually go to his children.

Best 73
Hal, N4GG

  As many of you might already know, Bill Fisher, W4AN, was inducted
into the CQ Contest Hall of Fame this past Saturday Night at the Dayton
Contest dinner. Hal, N4GG, gave the induction speech on behalf of the
Southeast Contest Club. He gave an eloquent speech despite the fact he
had a short amount of time to prepare his presentation. Plus, he had
never met Bill before in person. I have to say I was very proud to be a
member of the South East Contest Club when he concluded his speech
because of how Hal represented our organization.

 I want to be the first to thank Hal on behalf of the club. I know this
had to be difficuit because of the
circumstances involved. Also, thanks to all in the club (and outside)
that contributed to the nomination letter and helped Hal and myself
getting the facts in that letter to be accurate.

73, Jeff  KU8E
