Centenarian amateurs honoured

| September 4, 2015

Two long-time radio amateurs have been in the news this week.

The Quarter Century Wireless Association has honoured 105-year-old Charlie Hellman, W2RP for his 90 years in amateur radio.

Charlie got his licence in 1925 when he was just 15.

Two of his siblings also held amateur licences. Robert, now a Silent Key, was W2JAN and Benjamin, 96, is W2VB.

Another long-lived radio amateur is Harry Wolf, W6NKT who is 106, although he’s ‘only’ been licensed since 1936.
