It is with great sadness that I relay to you that our Dave Spalding N1LUM suffered a heart attack and became a silent key on March 3, 2015.
Dave was an active participant on the two meter traffic nets, serving as net control and message relay station, as well as manager of Heavy Hitters Traffic Net (HHTN). He was also active on VHF packet handling messages via that means as well. Dave was 55 years old. It was a great shock, and he will be sorely missed. May he rest in peace. Below is a link to his obituary.
73, Marcia KW1U, Section Traffic Manager
