What?! I had no idea. My gosh that was so sudden.
     I was wondering why he wasn't on the air in the early morning as I 
would usually catch him on 3885Kc.
     Wow, that is a great blow to our AM Community, Jeff was what an AM 
Operator was all about. He wasn't shy about telling you if there was 
something wrong on your signal, but quick to tell you when you sounded 
great. No Candy Coating from Jeff! He was a great builder and has built 
some nice equipment like the 813 Amplifier that matches his Harvey 
Wells, the 4-1000A Amplifier he just finished, etc. I know he was really 
enjoying his Borgi built Transmitter and sounded terrific on it, He was 
proud of that.
     I feel privileged to have been a friend of Jeff,  I will surely 
miss him.
     My deepest condolences go out to all family members and friends on 
this reflector.

73 Jeff
