CNY Hams lost a very dear friend this weekend! Roger Hamilton; WA2AEW, passed away Saturday. Roger was one of the nicest guys in Ham radio! We won't forget his big smile and handshake. All around great guy, always willing to help and gave a lot back to the hobby he thoroughly enjoyed. Roger had ongoing health issues for a year or two, but still remained active with both RAGS and LARC. He will be missed by many! Our heartfelt condolences to all his friends and family.
