Carl Evans, K6OHI - SK
It is with great shock and extreme sorrow that we announce that Carl Evans, K6OHI became a silent key on May 6, 2022. Our thoughts and prayers are extended to his wife Mai (Extra Class W6MAI) and his family.
Carl was first licensed in 2011 (KJ6OHI) as a technician and upgraded to General in 2012.
Carl was a regular check-in operator on the FPRA weekly net and even though he lived in the south county, he always had a very strong signal. We will miss hearing his voice.
