Who's your favorite Elecraft Elmer?

wayne burdick
Administrator
One thing that defines Elecraft is an extended community comprised of builders, operators, tinkerers, and friends. It's been gratifying to watch the breadth and depth of this interaction over the years (mostly civilized and helpful :)  

In particular, we'd like to recognize those who have stepped up to become "Elecraft Elmers," helping get others' kits working, figuring out cabling or software setup problems, and coaching new operators about how to make the most of their radios' features on the air.

If you have someone in mind, please tell us who they are and how they helped. Specific examples with short narratives would be great. We'll include as many of your stories as possible in upcoming newsletters.

Please send them to:  margaret at elecraft dot com.

73,
Wayne

Don Wilhelm -  I enjoy his  down to earth advice that doesn't require
more than a tenth grade education to understand. Note, however, there
are many others well worth listening to also.

I belong to a couple of groups (for other equipment and OS) and I can
assure everyone - the Elecraft reflector is unique. Ask a question and
you will get an answer - without snide responses.

Well, someone already put Don Wilhelm at the top of this list. So I’ll add my two:
Joe Subich and Jim Brown. Both of these guys have answered many questions about so many topics, not just Elecraft. I have a lot of respect for their opinions.

I am going to recommend Mike Blake K9JRI. He is an excellent diagnostician and understands a schematic better than most folks. He’s also an experienced networking engineer and administrator which goes a long way to solving some of the issues that seem hardware based at first.

I agree that Don W3FPR has been an incredible elmer here for many years. I
just wanted to also commend Tom Hammond N0SS (SK) for many earlier years of
beta testing, helpful tips, and answering questions on the reflector. Here
is a link to his preserved website. The soldering tutorial is invaluable.

I totally agree, Don W3FPR is awesome. His knowledge of Elecraft equipment
is superb.

In reply to this post by Russ W9RB
I agree that Tom Hammond N0SS (SK) created a valuable website with a lot
of information related to Elecraft products (particularly the K1 and K2)
and ham radio in general.
I am thankful that the Mid-Misouri Amateur Radio Club chose to preserve
the contents of his website within their website structure.  I use it
frequently (have it bookmarked) even though I have copied many of the
documents on my home fileserver.

If you have not reviewed Tom's website information to see what is there,
I invite you to do so, it can be valuable.

Re: Who's your favorite Elecraft Elmer?

K9ZTV
As Trustee for the NØSS memorial call sign, I want to thank Don Wilhelm
and Russ Boutell for remembering Tom Hammond and his Elecraft legacy, as
well as others who still revere his memory.  A more unselfishly helpful
person never walked this Earth.  I will make sure the club knows about
Don's kind words for our efforts in maintaining Tom's website material
at our monthly meeting tomorrow night.
