    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.

    In your opinion.

    That said,
    You are right from your side and I am right from mine.
    Sadly, we're both one too many mornings and a thousand miles behind.

    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.
    Godspeed Tallman
    Rest Easy
