"It is with a profound sense of loss," Roske wrote, "that I report Leo Meyerson, WØGFQ, became a Silent Key last evening 4/13/2011 at 9:50 p.m. in the Eisenhower Hospital, Rancho Mirage, CA."
Meyerson owned and operated World Radio Laboratories in Council Bluffs, Iowa, which built the "Globe" line of amateur radio transmitters in the mid-20th century. Better known models included the Globe Scout, Globe Champion and Globe King lines.
A brief profile of Meyerson in honor of his 100th birthday appears in the March issue of CQ magazine.
