SK Phil Harris, VA3MTE
It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Phil Harris, VA3MTE. Phil was the most senior successful amateur radio student that LARC has had, writing his exam and earning honours at 89. He then went on to build a QRP-Labs QCX CW transceiver. His visits to the club station were very enjoyable for all concerned. He will be missed. His death notice can be found here.
