FWIW: I renewed my license on line direct to the FCC. Not that much of
a hassle, despite what W5YI and ARRL might have you believe. And the
renewal was issued in 72 hours!

Subject: Charles T. Skarolia Callsign?
I'm trying to help the grandson of a deceased ham track down his
grandfather's callsign. The ham is Charles T. Skarolia and he last
lived in the Santa Barbara area before he passed in 1989. I know
that he taught CW in the military. The grandson, Jim Tucker, recently
received his ham ticket and is trying to find some info on his
grandfather's ham career. If you or some of the other OMs up there
remember Charles, I'd appreciate an email.
Thanks and 73,

I have just learned that Cliff Buttschardt, K7RR, passed away peacefully early Sunday, July 30th. Cliff was a long time friend of SBARC and Amateurs throughout the world. He had been in treatment for esophageal cancer for the past year or so, but remained active in all his pursuits. He was very active in AMSAT since it's early years and for the past 6 years was a mentor to many students at Cuesta College and Cal Poly San Luis Obispo with the CubeSat program http://polysat.calpoly.edu/http://cubesat.calpoly.edu/.
A frequent visitor to SBARC club meetings and Hamfests, he will be missed, both in the crowd and behind the mic. May he rest in peace.
