<< Don Stoner, W6TNS recently passed away of a brain aneurism, at a hospital 
 in Florida, where he and his wife Lucy have been spending the last few 
 winters in their condo.  He was 67.
 Don, a longtime DX'er, and former editor of CQ, was a highly talented and 
 imaginative engineer, inventor, businessman, author, devoted father and 
 husband, and all around good guy.  In recent years he's been a champion of 
 the rights of home and condo dwellers to erect antennas, and was a maverick 
 in home automation systems.  >>

       I just got this sad news. Don was very influential to many of us 
getting our licenses in the 50's and 60's when he was writing for Popular 
Electronics. He was always a couple of steps ahead of the crowd with his 
vision. dit-dit-dit dah-di-dah.
