I have recently learnt that Seymour, W6CCP has gone SK. I am sure he will be missed, he had a fantastic station as well as a fantastic heart. He loved to have regular long path chats, and would always make time for Operators wanting to talk to him. Seymour’s station was one of the few stations I have worked from VK3 & XU7. RIP Seymour.

Those not familiar with the Hobby would probably ask why I enjoy using my 36 Year old Yaesu FT-101E, given its age… Then again, it talks just fine to HAMs who’ve been on the air twice as long (looking at Seymour, W6CCP).
On that note, if you’ve never spoken to Seymour, he’s about the strongest American i’ve ever heard on 20M. I’ve always wondered how he manages to avoid melting his linear, and that statement is not pertaining to its output of 1.25Kw. Lets just say I wouldn’t be surprised if it was rated at 1.5kW CONTINOUS DUTY 🙂
- It appears Fred was confused by that previous remark. What I meant was, Seymour can rag chew with the best of them – he is a fine conversationalist.
