​​

I think that might have been the worst ever net due to conditions. It was almost all white noise. When I first got out there to tune up I scanned the band from 14000 to 14052 and heard nothing. I ever switched xcvrs…still nothing. I did get a couple of folks. Maybe it’ll be better next week. Fred on NR4DL had a decent signal at QSA3 or so.

Merry Christmas to all. A decent net. Even got Sam up in Juneau on 7mc who said it was snowing. For you Florida guys that’s when it’s cold and this white stuff falls out of the sky. Look it up on the internet. One very sad moment here when I sent the following item.

ITEM TED DAVIS CWO USCG RET ZUT 11/W6VXP CROSSED THE BAR ON 15 DEC 2018 – A MOMENT OF SILENCE PSE AS…..RIP TED WE WILL MISS YOU BV

Short Story: In ’68 I was stationed with Ted at NMC San Bruno. It was a Saturday and I was an RM1 on watch and sitting 500. Ted and John Thomas walked into the radio room. Both were hams. They came over and we were BS’ing and one of them mentioned a ‘dipole’. I asked what a dipole was. They explained and I got very interested. It peaked a real interest in me and I went on and got my General ham license and two years later my commercial 2nd telegraph.

           Obituary for Donald Lindsey Wilcox 

                   Donald Wilcox
   January 22, 1944 - Tuesday, Dec 25, 2018


The family of Don Wilcox sadly announces his passing on Tuesday, December 25, 2018 at the age of 74. 

Don proudly served the Coast Guard Cutter Halfmoon assigned as a Radio Operator, and toured the East Atlantic from Argentia, Newfoundland to Varadaro, Cuba. On his eighth tour to Bermuda he met his wife, Lorna, and they were married in Calgary the following year; spending 52 years together.

He became an amateur radio operator, and built his own radio at the age of 13, starting as WA6MKB and ending with his silent key of VE6CG.

Don was the Chief of Radio Communications at the Canmore Nordic Centre, for the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics.

He leaves behinds his wife, Lorna; son, John (Hope); daughter, Bev (Donald); and grandchildren, Brian, Alisha, Sylvia, Geoffrey, and Hailey. Missing him also are Big Rock (Rocky) the Yorchi, and Kokanee the cat.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in Don’s memory are gratefully accepted by either The Alberta Cancer Foundation https://www.albertacancer.ca/donate) or Huntington Society of Canada (https://www.huntingtonsociety.ca/donate/).

A Memorial Celebration of Life Service will be held Thursday, January 3, 2019 at 11:00 am at Choice Memorial (#105, 4715 – 13th Street NE). 

To view and share photos, condolences and stories of Don please visit www.choicememorial.com.

Not a bad net. All stations copyable. Some QSB. I heard Dennis/K7DCG on 7mc answered but apparently he didn’t hear me. Rick/KF2FD is the winner of the coldest temp at 4F.
