I was saddened to hear this morning of the recent passing of Bill Orenstein, KH6QX, after a long illness. Bill was a longtime member of the Emergency Amateur Radio Club and a regular participant in the nightly nets, and came to Hawaii after a long and storied career in broadcast audio engineering. He was one of the night owls on the 146.88 repeater, and I remember hearing him and Ed Watts KA6WVO (SK) in ragchew in the wee hours of the morning. I’ve always kept my radio off at night every since (my shack is in my bedroom – I do need to sleep).
You can read more on Bill’s career in his profile in the July 2007 issue of the EARC’s Wireless Dispatch.
We’ll miss you, King Henry Six Queen X-Ray. RIP.
