As most already know, one of my best friends, N9NS passed away recently. Mike was a neat guy and was always there to help.
We met on the air when I was a novice in 1969. But we met face-to-face for the first time at LAX prior to our DX-pedition to Clipperton Island in 1992 (FO0CI). We had been on 26 DX-peditions together. He was my best man at my wedding and was there when my daughters were born. Those that knew Mike, understood that he was 'one-of-a-kind'.
All DX-peditioners have their go-to folks that are ready to travel and are a great personality to have along. MIke was one of those guys.
IThanks to W9ZRX, I now have copies of Mike's DX-pedition logs and some QSL cards. I will do my level-best to confirm QSOs if they are in his log.
