Jim O’Connell W9WU SK
It is with great sadness that we learned of our longtime friend becoming a silent key. Jim performed the MC duties of of the W9DXCC convention for many years creating lasting memories for those that attended. He will be sorely missed. The 2022 W9DXCC convention will be dedicated to the memory of Jim.
