I am sorry to be informing all MCRN operators that we lost another long-time net member. I am sure that many of you, as myself, have enjoyed the company of Pete Economos- W9RMB both on the air and at ham radio events. He was a great friend and personnally I have fond memories of the times we bought and sold radios with each other as well as our sharing technical information, especially regarding our KnightKit Ocean Hoppers. |
Pete had some technical difficulties with his ham station earlier this year. The last time he checked into the net was April 11, 2020 and I reported to him that his signal was the best I had heard in a long time. It was learned recently that Pete became a SK at 74 years of age on June 13, 2020. A final call to W9RMB was made on the MCRN. Pete is survived by Susan, his wife of 56 years, and two sons, Chris and James.
