Ben White Memorial Net
People come into our lives and pass through swiftly.
A very few come into our lives and remain forever in our hearts.
Larry Frazer was one of the very few.
– Jack K2GWNAfter Larry’s tragic death on September 30, 1992, seventeen of his HBN friends set up the Larry Frazer Memorial Fund:
N1DHT,W1EOF,WA1TBY,W2EAG,WI2G,K2GWN, W2WSS,W3KOD,W3QQ,K3RC,WA3UNX,W4DJ, W4FRR,NJ4L,K4MTX,K4ZB,WB5ZJN,KA8WNO
All members of the Hit and Bounce Net were asked to submit suggestions as to how to use the fund. The decision was made to purchase a suitable trophy to be awarded to a deserving member in memory of W4SUS.
Mike, KA5NNG suggested the paddle. Jack, K2GWN inspired the inscription and the tribute. Don, WA3UNX took charge of the purchase, engraving and the dust cover. Jack, KA8WNO offered to build a sturdy shipping carton if needed and Pete, W2WSS volunteered to design a certificate to accompany the trophy.
The first award committee was Jack KA8WNO, George N1DHT and Gale NJ4L. The second committee was Don WA3UNX, Harry, N3DE, and John, K8LJG.
The paddle was awarded quarterly until January 2007, at which time it was discontinued. It was resumed January 2010, and the Award Committee composed of WD8Q Chair, W2EAG, W2MTA, K8LJG and has been discontinued as we no longer send out the key. The key is in the possession of Mark W2EAG. The decision on the continuance will be announced at a later date.
[K8LJG, John, is an original WASC member.]
An added note – the FB wooden case protecting the W4SUS keyer was constructed by one of the original WASC members, Jack KA8WNO.
