HRN Extra – Gary’s New East Coast Studio (and a hamfest)

Gary, now K4AAQ, is coming back to join David W0DHG on HamRadioNow. He’s moved to the Charlotte suburbs in South Carolina, and he’s putting the band… er, podcast studio back together. Here’s a quick look.

Also, Gary stopped by the Charlotte Hamfest in March and shot some video.

A Little Help for Jeff AC4ZO (and Bobbie KD4ZVW)

HamRadioNow viewers will probably remember Jeff Wittich AC4ZO. Jeff appeared on more than 40 episodes, and gave me invaluable help in producing many of the hamfest podcasts from Dayton, Orlando and Huntsville*

Jeff and his wife Bobbie KD4ZVW need help. Last year (Fall of 2020) Jeff was diagnosed with brain cancer – Grade 4 Glioblastoma – incurable, with an average prognosis of about 2 years. He’s undergone surgery and radiation therapy to remove as much of the cancer as possible, but that’s what gives him those ~2 years. There’s no way to remove all of it, and it will grow back.

Jeff and Bobbie have had to retire early. The cancer and surgery have left Jeff both mentally and physically unable to continue the field engineering he’d done all his life. Bobbie retired to spend full time taking care of Jeff in the time he has left.

They’ve launched a GoFundMe campaign: https://www.gofundme.com/f/lets-pay-it-forward-for-bobbie
to help with the mounting expenses. The goal is $25,000, which seems modest to me. They do have good insurance, but it doesn’t cover everything, and with early retirement, their incomes have dropped significantly. This GoFundMe is a bridge for Bobbie to life, eventually, without Jeff by her side.

So if you find yourself so inclined, maybe kick in $5 or $10. And enjoy the Best of Jeff in this video.

*with a nod to Cliff W4FT, who also assisted in hamfest show production (and yes, I do miss you, West Coast Cliff!).

David visits with some of the members of Ham Cam International. This informal radio club meets via JITSI.
