Bill Hensel AAØRQ. Wow this blows me away. I used to see and talk to Steve over at the Cutthroat Cafe. The Arapaho Radio was surely comprised of some of the very best operators any where to be found. I met Steve at the Christmas Club get together, he sat and talked to Tina and I most of the time we were there. I can’t remember Rick’s call who was a member of the Arapaho Radio club back in the early 80s and Rick was a member of the Metro State College Ham club of which I was president of. Steve told me that Rick had passed away and I was shocked.

Steve was a great CW operator and a very good Qrp man…there aren’t many hams like him left any more. This is a great loss to the hobby.

God bless his family.

72 to Steve from another cw man and Qrp operator.
