Tribute To Paul Streeter - AB9PS
Just this past Tuesday, the world lost a great man and the circle of radio amateurs around the world lost a great member of its fraternity. Paul Streeter - AB9PS became a silent key (SK) in a local Chicago hospital after fighting with medical problems.
Paul made a list of contributions and achievements to amateur radio, most recently serving as a Net Control Operator for Northern Cook County Skywarn during severe weather events. Behind the scenes, Paul was a warm, caring, easygoing, man. He was the kind of person who appreciated everyone around him, and was always the definition of what a friend should be.
You always knew Paul on the air even without his callsign because of his distinctive voice. That voice was welcoming and friendly, fun, kind, and full of humor. Paul liked to tell jokes and laugh, he could make anyone laugh to be honest. Many hours and days were spent with Paul, all of them were pleasantly memorable.
Shortwave America will dedicate the next few entries to Paul's memory. Rest peacefully, Paul, you are never forgotten.
