WØQIN - Bob Clark Robert E. 'Bob' Clark
Edina, MN

QCWA # 10159
Chapter 8

It is my sad duty to report the passing of Robert E Clark (Bob), W0QIN.

I am not sure whether Bob was a past member of QCWA , but I beleve that he was.

Bob was a long time Engineer at Honeywell's Avionics Division (formerly named the "Aero" Division), where he worked in the antenna testing "Quiet Lab".

Bob was a very well known and widely respected local Ham Radio operator. He was a very active Ham, who used many of the new Ham technologies. I have known Bob since I first joined Honeywell in 1951 as a Design Engineer. I very likely knew and contacted Bob on the air years before I joined Honeywell, but at the age of 93 my memories are fading. In later years I did not have eyeball contact with Bob, but we kept in touch through email and had occasional over the air radio contacts.

I am enclosing a copy of Bob's Obit after my signature.
