Phil Bretz, KE2EA, Hornell NY

I received a telephone call yesterday from our old friend, Phil, KE2ea, long-time Net Control for the New England Weather Net on Mondays.  My wife and I had the pleasure of visiting with Phil and his wife back in 2014 on one of our trips to the West.

Phil’s wife passed on earlier this Summer after a serious heart attack.  Phil needed to discontinue his role with the NEWN because they had to move their bed downstairs where Phil’s radio was and his wife needed her sleep and could no longer climb stairs.

Our sympathy goes out to Phil and I encouraged him to think about becoming active again on the NEWN.  I told him that I would work on giving him back his roster number, #11, that he had for many years.
