Lee Deforest 2 meter repeater
Our Next Spotlight Member is Michael Williams, KE6CLV
Michael is very quiet and unassuming. He takes photos at our meetings and events, so that is how you might know of him. Michael started out in radio in Portland as W7RVN, in 1957, but counts 1992 as his ham anniversary date. He is retired Navy. He has been to such interesting places as Israel and Iceland.
Michael's first camera was a Kodak 828, a 35 mm type. And he has progressed from there, as all us camera buffs do. As for hobbies, aside from ham radio, Michael likes hiking but says he’s “getting a little old to scramble.”
Michael enjoys listening to music and he does write a little bit.
We want to thank Michael, who is also on the LDFARC’s Board of Directors, as well as a club photographer and just an all around nice guy!
