It is with great sadness that we have to report that one of our avid users Lee, N6MIV passed away Wednesday night (Aug 10, 2011). He checked in regularly from "System 3 in Pt. Arena" as he used to announce. He was always monitoring and glad we brought not only the first UHF machine to the area but a wide area linked system as well. Communications into & out of the coastal areas can be critical during storms, road closures, power outages and other 'events' as facilities and resources are usually very limited and he appreciated we kept that vital link alive. Lee always promoted CARLA to the local area Hams since the time it first came on the air. We'll miss talking to you Lee and we'll certainly miss the "voice from Pt. Arena".
