    It is with a heavy and shocked heart that i inform W8MRM and WY8DOT of the passing of

    Alan "AL" Adams. KD8LZW

    Al was one of the people on our 2 meter net that you just knew would be there with a kind word and occasional signal report from Lincoln Park :-)

    Al served our country, enjoyed antique Motorcycles, antique radios and Ham Radio along with many other things which kept him busy until his health sidelined those activity's. but he still checked in on Tuesday night....

    I received an email from Al's son Jim with the news.

    "This is a difficult note to write, but the communication is necessary.

    This is Jim Adams, son of Allan Adams KD8LZW. I must unfortunately report

    that my Father has passed away from complications of bladder cancer. He passed quietly while in hospice care at 11:07 PM Christmas Eve.

    Before he passed, he asked me to try to contact John Roberts and report

    that his most recent Net check-in would probably be his last.

    He took pride in making consistent check-ins on Tuesday evening, and was a

    life long radio enthusiast.

    He also wanted to wish all the membership of the 2-Meter net a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year".

    Even in his final hours he was thinking of others and his 2 meter net family

    You will be truly missed Al.. 73's from your W8MRM and WY8DOT, 2 meter net family..

    This link is to his Obituary you will definitely want to read it..
