Just saw this - sad to hear he's gone. He was on here for a long time. Got to enjoy each day - and every day on the forum.

Just saw this. :(

Makes peeing contests over ham radio mods seem pretty darn silly.

Maybe administration could create a page in memoriam with the avatars and names of all WWDX members who have passed. Perhaps include the date each joined the site and when they departed.

One thing has absolutely NOTHING to do with the other.

Not a bad idea but impossible to do actually. People disappear from the site all the time. Disgruntled? Not interested? Deceased? Who knows. In this case his wife actually contacted me as an admin. That is the only reason we found out FOR SURE. There have been many rumours of members passing on only to have them resurface later. Not sure whet the real answer is.

May you rest in a better place Tallman.

I'm grateful that I was able to learn from you, your posts and responses offered experienced knowledge, in a non-judgmental manner.

Thank you.

Very sad to hear about this. His posts were alway insightful and knowledgeable. He helped as many as he could, giving freely of his knowledge and experience.
He will be missed around here, thats for sure and maybe his recommendations for radio circuit repair may be quoted on the forum here in times ahead.

I have been away, nothing bad, just life and work.
In memory of Tallman and his contributions to this site and radio:

We remember silent keys mostly for their voices and now with the internet their contributions in writing since most of us never meet.

... -.-

    Sorry to hear you troubles, he is famous around here for his scams.

  • @ kb9ghn:
    My first thought was the i.r.s. may be interested in a long term money making scam without proper taxes being paid..probably more than electronics involved.
  • @ Toll_Free:
    My first thought was why hasn't someone paid him a visit. I mean, his address is posted above.
  • @ beakster1715:
    Good news! I opened an appeal case after eBay sided with superhawkwss6. I also opened an IC3 case & sent that information to eBay. Within an hour they responded, reversed their decision and returned all of my money. Unfortunately, superhawkwss6 stole my CB radio and eBay will likely not suspend or close his account, but rather allow him to continue his criminal activity. I think I'll still file a report with our sheriff's dept (the sheriff is a friend of mine) though I know this type of crime isn't worth their time. This guy needs to be stopped and I'm certainly going to do my best to make that happen.
