Another Silent Key

With sadness I report the passing of our good friend and long-time SARS member, Dorothy Wogh, KA6GUR.

Dorothy and her husband Nick were licensed and joined SARS more than thirty years ago and participated in every activity from Native Sons parades, bed races, bicycle events and the annual Wild Horse Valley Olympic trials.
In 2012, Dorothy moved to a senior care facility in Grass Valley to be near her son, Frank Herwatt (KG6OQO). Frank writes: “Thank you very much for your note regarding my mother. Last October, she moved to our house in Nevada city because she felt that she needed living assistance. She was here with us until April (2013) when she passed away at our house. It was quick and sudden but she had a good life. She was almost 96. I know that she appreciated her work with ham radio friends and talked about it all the time.”

Dorothy is interred in Petaluma.

It all started in 1968 at a small 100 Watt radio station in Napa California. Looks like I finally got my priorities straight: the career is on the back burner and the K3 is getting some air time.
