Sam Weiss, W6LXR, long time PAPA Member, is now a Silent Key.
His memorial service was April 5, 2023.
PAPA Member Josh Landerer, KJ0SHL, was Sam’s nephew.
Brian WA6JFK remembers that Sam was a great QSO – Norm K6YXH recalls that he always came back to calls with nice words.
Sam kept busy as a substitute teacher, filling in at Viewpoint and other schools – he helped get ham radio set up in a classrooms and and helped new hams at the schools.
He often tried to check into Murray’s noon-time swap net on Viewpoint’s 10m dipole – not a great antenna for 40m – one day we were going to add a 40m element.
We’ll miss Sam’s gentle kind voice on the PAPA System!
