It is with our deepest sympathy that we must announce Walter Berkley, K2CXP is now a SK. Best wishes to his family during this trying time.
Walt K2CXP was an active member of QSY and MBARC until he had an unfortunate fall last year which landed him in rehab for some time. We will always remember him most for his enthusiasm, especially at Field Day 2016, where he enjoyed introducing kids and adults to amateur radio at the GOTA station. RIP Walt.
