Chris, OE3CHC sk

I got sad news QSP de OE3MHU, Chris went sk on Feb. 6th.
We met several times, had lots of QSOs with sota, OE-emergency net and 2 m FM ragchew.
Of particular note are the valuable tips he gave me when I commenced my work as OE/NO RM.
Chris was a rare example of an OM being 100% cut from the “ham-cloth”.
Thinking of his wife and family in this dark hour.
I imagine, he will listen to our QSOs from where he is now. R.I.P. Chris
