Just a note to those who knew and cared about Bob, W6SKQ. I don't
know how to handle these things very well, and it is hard. Hope you
all don't mind a little of my rambling emotion.

Bob was on the phone with me this weekend, and we were discussing the
Z-match designs he had shown me, as well as field day plans. I spoke
to Fred, K6MDJ, and he explained that Bob contacted a whole lot of his
friends and fellow QRP folks this weekend. I'm glad we all got to
speak with him.....but wish I could call him again today. It really
hurts. It is so final. I suppose I never will understand.

We'll all be up there at the Zuni Loop for Field Day, but the most
enthusiastic was Bob. We will have a good time, I am sure, but will
miss that guy. So very much. I really liked having him on earth with
us, his silly little QRP rigs, his big old HRO and all. Bye Bob. Hope
to catch you on the next go-round.
