C6APR: DX Team tragically killed.

It is with great sadness that I read this morning at DX Hamspirit that four members of the C6APR DX team where killed when their light plane crashed. They were headed for Crooked Island in the Bahamas for this weekend’s CQ World Wide Contest when the six-seater twin-engine Piper Aztec PA-23 crashed soon after take-off in South Carolina. They were pilot Pete Radding W2GJ, Ed Steeble K3IXD, Randy Hargenrader K4QO and Dallas Carter W3PP. The team have used Crooked Island for CQ World Wide and IOTA contests since 2006 visiting seven times. Our thoughts are with the families and freinds of the victims.

Note: DX Hamspirit servers appear to have fallen over due to the heavy demand caused by the devastating news.
