  W6AAQ  SK April 14 2010

It was nearly 20 years ago when I first met Don W6AAQ at a swap in Sacramento Ca. He wandered over to my table and inspected what I was selling and gave me a funny look; and asked why I was not selling his antenna? I replied I don't know, what do you have? He wandered away for a few moments and returned with 3 of his DK-3 antennas, and dropped them on my table and started to walk away saying; " you can pay me later." I had no idea at the time who he was, or what the antennas were. I had to chase after him in the parking lot and asked who he was, and what were the antennas he left with me. That was Don's plan, to have me learn about the antennas; I did, and sold them for Don for over 16 years. He will be greatly missed, a great ham in every sense of the word. His legacy lives on all over the world.
