Mark Moad, September 27, 1944 – January 10, 2019.

Gene WA5ETK writes:  “Mark was co-founder of the Pringle Communications Group when he lived here.  His and N5LTZ’s PACKET and APRS stations are still in operation at Dalhart, Gruhlkey, Dumas, Stinnett, Borger, Canadian, Pampa, Wayside, Miami, and in Amarillo.  He drove back and forth from and to Odessa to maintain the system until his health failed.

Mark reconditioned and programmed many sheriff’s department, police and fire department radios that were taken out of service and replaced with newer equipment.

He held an Extra Class license that would have expired in 2026.”


Our sincerest condolences to wife Kerry and family — our thoughts and prayers are with all his friends and family.
