* Setting the record straight: The brief obituary for Don Newcomb, WØDN, that appeared in The ARRL Letter, Vol 25, No 32 (Aug 11, 2006), contained incomplete information. Newcomb, who died July 27, co-founded the Butternut Company with Pat Tice, WAØTDA. "We started the company in the basement of an old country schoolhouse Don was using as a home," Tice recalled this week. "It happened to be in Butternut Township, Blue Earth County, Minnesota -- hence the 'Butternut' name."
