Wayne Green, W2NSD, one of the real characters of amateur radio passed away Friday. This from the Wayne’s World website:
Wayne Green passed away this morning in a peaceful, painless transition from this life on Earth. An eternal optimist, and one who loved to share his never-ending zest for life, he was a friend to many and will be missed greatly. Wayne was not afraid of dying and was very much ready to embark on his next great adventure to the afterlife.
If you would like to write a note to him or about him, please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will share it here on Wayne’s blog.
There are already many tributes there. Even if you didn’t know him like many hams of my generation did, it would be worthwhile to read some of them. More information about W2NSD, can be found on his Wikipedia page. TheARRL website also has a story on Wayne Green.
