With a heavy heart we are sad to report the passing of Lalon Savage, KC5HKT. Lalon had been a lifelong operator, a fixture at PARC meetings, and an elmer to many. There is no doubt that many of the antennas he built are still providing dutiful service to their owners today and will continue for many years to come.
The ranks of silent keys added a good op this week. Cheers to you, friend.

Work Day Thanks
Update 5/19/2021 – Adair KD5DYP delivered a check for $5,124 to Joe Krizan, Ed K5KBV’s son – the entire proceeds of the sale of Ed’s ham radio equipment. Thanks to all that purchased items or donated to the cause.
Our deepest appreciation to the following members and friends who came out to help or lend moral support at K5KBV’s QTH: Dan WA8YYE, Raymond W5RAW, Adair KD5DYP, Daniel KG5KIF, Marci KA5IRA, Marci’s friends Heather and Steve, Brad N5LUL, Mark KG5NWE, Melinda KG5NWD, John N5BNU, Mike W5MHE and wife Sherry (thanks for the donuts!), Ed’s friend Randy, Jake KG5PDF, David KC5VGW, Charlie W5CEH and Ken WB5QLI, who graciously agreed to store antennas until the sale/auction. If I missed anyone, please let me know at email@example.com.
Net Controls Needed!
The PARC Morning 2M Net is looking for additional net controls to fill two slots during the week! The net is an informal “round-robin” hour of ham-related topics both technical and social and is fun to run. If you can volunteer an hour of your time from 10:00 am until 11:00 am please contact Scott KG5ZES at (806) 683-8910 and he’ll get you scheduled and “show you the ropes.”
