    Like others, I'm sure, Ed was helpful to me in getting my amateur license; he pointed me towards a testing site in Brunswick County. My condolences to the family. KJ4HKA.

    Thank you Ed for all the years of friendship though the good times and hard times your were there. Ed I considered you my elmer and you put a HF radio and microphone in my hand for the first time. I will miss all the trips adventures and good times we had together from camping, hamfests, battleship, and lighthouse events. You always were there to help me or anyone in the Ham radio hobby. You will be greatly missed in this area not only on the air but by me. I have enjoyed knowing you and our friendship and hope to keep your memory alive and carry on what you and others have taught me. 73 Capt. Mike
