Nebraska Ham Critically Injured in Hit-and-Run

Jeff Beiermann, WB0M, is a news photographer for the Omaha World Herald newspaper and the ARRL Public Information Coordinator for Nebraska. According to the ARRL and KETV News, Beiermann was heading home from work in early February when his car was hit by a stolen SUV that ran a red light and then kept on going. The driver and a passenger were later apprehended. Beiermann was rushed to the hospital in critical condition but is expected to recover. The ARRL says get-well cards may be sent to Beiermann's home address but asks that no one send anything that would require a response or acknowledgement.
