Russ Mackey NW6U SK

My dear friend and favorite ham radio mentor/elmer Russ Mackey, NW6U, passed away yesterday. Russ was a member of our Club these last 32 years and was our vice president when I was first licensed. Chairing the repeater committee, Russ spent countless hours over years working on our Club’s repeaters, remotely and in-person..  Supremely knowledgeable in many fields, and he knew more about repeaters than anyone I’ve ever known.  Russ was always kind and supportive.  73, Cap KE6AFE
