Sad news to report to you this evening, Dick Lemke n0mtq passed away April 10 from complications in his battle against cancer. Dick had always monitored the simplex Frequencies here in the Grand Island Area, spoke to him many times on the air, he could always be counted on for a good QSO. He will be missed. If some of you guys who knew him longer and better than I did would like to add to this post let me know and I would be happy to do so. I do not have any details other than he will have a graveside service on Wednesday afternoon. If I get more info I will post it.
