On June 27, 2011 my OM John K8UP became a silent key. The family decided to keep his call in the family. VK4TJF is now K8UP. You can learn more about the wonderful contributions that my dad made at www.fleming-photo.com . Thank you Sean my brother K8KHZ for converting Dad's photo website to a true memorial. He was a great Ham and Father. All those who knew him know that he is still sending CQ DX from the best DX entity there is. I have taken over his call sign K8UP so that his memory will live on. I also remember my mom Marsha Fleming talking on the repeater while driving me to scout camp. She is still a ham and her call sign is N8FE. She is also my QSL manager. My brother is Sean Fleming his call sign is K8KHZ and he is very active as well.
