Warren N0WF passed this month. He has been a SWIARC member at least as far back as our computerized records go, 1992, also member of the Aksarben ARC in Omaha since before that. Besides radio he had an interest and skills with motorcycles and cars, shown here visiting our F/Day at Fairmount Park in 2006. Warren would have celebrated his 55th birthday September 5th.
