I knew Floyd Dunlap/WA5TWF personally. He lived in Houston/Spring(?), TX had
medium powered rigs, and antennas that weren't very high, but he was as active
as could be,
and quite the AM Activist!
I was in Clear Lake, TX (just south of Houston, by N.A.S.A.) when I called his
arrange a visit. One of his parents answered - Then the other. That's when I
that -this was the day of Floyd's funeral-. He had passed away, three days
May he Rest In Peace.
The Floyd I was thinking of, lives up in Arkansas and was also on with a BC-610
W5MEU, W5PYT and the others mentioned above.
It'll come to me later ;-)
