Wonderous Wireless Widgets

Once upon a time, in the 1960's, I had a Technician license and worshipped at the alter of Heathkit and Hallicrafters - tubes, crystals and Morse Code. Now I am back, like Rip Van Winkle, waking up in a new world of wonderous wireless widgets. This blog is about that adventure and the folks at Alameda's ARCA club who are helping me along the way.

Ron Bigelow, KF6LSY, passed away December 16th. His memorial service will be Saturday, January 5th, at 2 pm at the Twin Towers United Methodist Church at Oak and Central in Alameda.

Ron was an early member of the Amateur Radio Club and of Alameda's Community Emergency Response Team (CERT).

Ron helped to site and install ARCA's first K6QLF repeater.  He helped many Technician licensees get on the net for the first time, programming their radios and encouraging them to try it out.

In CERT Ron taught supplemental classes, participated in exercises, built out the MDU's and took an activist role on the CERT Board.

He will be missed by many.
