Jim Barnett - AA0TG - SK (Apr 17, 2007)

November 13, 1932 - April 17, 2006

It is with deep sadness and regret that I learned this morning that Jim, AA0TG, has become a silent key. Jim was a long time member of the Maritime Mobile Service Net and the Intercontinental Traffic Net. Jim was also very active in other facets of our hobby including contesting. Jim's big signal from Leavenworth, Kansas was always a pleasure to hear. Needless to say Jim will be greatly missed.

As always, 73,
Maritime Mobile Service Net
