>From the CQ Newsroom ...

It is with great sadness that we report that our friend and longtime colleague, Dave Ingram, K4TWJ, became a Silent Key this morning (Jan. 20), as a result of complications from a massive heart attack he suffered on New Year's Eve.

Dave has been writing for CQ at least since 1981 and has been a CQ columnist since 1982, starting with an amateur television column called World of Video. That column eventually broadened its outlook and became World of Ideas, Dave's signature monthly column in CQ. Regular topics included code keys, stealth antennas, building "new vintage" tube gear and mobiling. In addition, for the past decade, Dave has been CQ's QRP (low power) Editor and "How it Works" columnist. His enthusiasm for whatever caught his interest was contagious and spread widely through his informal yet educational writing style.

Funeral arrangements are not complete as of this writing. We will post additional information on the CQ website news page when it becomes available. Condolence cards may be sent to Dave's wife, Sandy, WB4OEE, at their Callbook address.

The editors

- This is a tremendous loss to the CW community. Dave was not only a super-nice, ethical guy, but his books about keys are an invaluable resource of information for collectors. I'm proud to have him listed as a FISTS member (#1435), and also to be the recipient of his infamous "Woody" key - made of a clothespin - that he sent out to those with whom
he had a special QSO.
73, Nancy WZ8C

- From the CQ Newsroom...
Many hams have inquired about making donations in memory of Dave Ingram, K4TWJ. His wife, Sandy, WB4OEE, asks that any such contributions be made to the American Heart Association.
Vadim Mohov, RU1AP has been reported Silent Key at the age of 85.

Far above 60 degrees North in the icy arctic reaches of Northern Finland lies a log house with an original Finnish sauna and cozy sleeping quarters along with the radio station OH8X with its massive antennas springing up from the barren tundra. See
Should you like to experience the deep North with its blazing Aurora Borealis coupled with unique polar openings to the United States, this is your chance. Radio Arcala will host four or five younger contest types participating as a multi team in the ARRL DX (CW) Contest on the weekend of February 20-21, 2010. The event will start Thursday evening on the 18th and finish on Monday the 22nd. SSB/WARC operating will also be available on those days, including on a limited scale during the contest weekend.
Your destination will be the city of Oulu from where we will take care of you. Just drop us a note and explain your desire as well as your potential as an operator on a multinational CW team. Send your email to team leader Marius Hauki, LB3HC [] and he will give you
more details. Please contact Marius soonest but no later than January 30th.
You may also approach your favorite Contest Club and/or contest operators in your area for their expected support in making your trip a reality. You would owe them an adventure report upon your return.
