An LoTW confirmation for a 2019 CW contact with Fred Laun, K3ZO was received yesterday. I don’t know who finalized those logging chores, but I appreciate it and having that final QSO with Fred confirmed. He became a Silent Key in January of this year.

K3ZO was a giant in our hobby. A passionate contester and DXer he was a member of the ARRL Maxim Society and Life Member, and was a member of the Potomac Valley Radio Club. Laun also served as Director for The Yasme Foundation.

His ham radio resume was pure gold and sets the standard for each of us to follow.
