Low-Band Authority ON4UN SK

John Devoldere, ON4UN, a leading authority on DX and propagation in the low HF and MF portions of the spectrum, passed away on November 9. His ARRL book, "ON4UN's Low-Band DXing," graces the bookshelves of many serious 80- and 160-meter operators. In a Facebook post on November 10, John's daughter Marleen wrote that "John's health has steadily deteriorated throughout the year, but in the last few weeks he was home with us where he peacefully passed away yesterday." She added, "I am grateful to the many of you who have given him so much joy over the years." A "digital farewell ceremony" was planned for November 21. (Tnx W1PJE)
