I am sorry to report that our own Bob W8OLO has passed away. Thanks to WA3EZN for bringing the announcement from OSSBN. Funeral arrangements are as of this writing incomplete. Details should be available at

Bob was a traffic handler not only on COTN, where he often served as CW liaison, but also OSSBN—and could often be heard checking into the net mobile from his truck as he drove throughout the state and region. He was also net manager of the Ohio Slow Net. Patient and supportive of new operators, Bob helped me (KD8TTE) become a CW operator. We will miss him.
