QCWA Life Member 27232 - Noted QST Columist for many years, moved to Onario many years ago. The last address we have was in Ottawa. Somewhere I have a stack of card notes from Rod from my early years DXing and a letter about 15 years ago that details why he moved to Canada. For years his main job was the communications officer for the Chicago PD. The obituary was published in the Ottawa Citizen on November 20th. GM Jim LaPorta, N1CC
