Sad news from John Taddei that Charlie Carambelas, W2TVY, passed away
over the weekend. He had been in Sloan Kettering for several months
undergoing treatment. Charlie was a great CBS maintenance man and one
of the nicest guys to work with and a pleasure to know. Always a smile
and a jovial outlook. He was a big help to me when I was attempting to
build up my CW speed for the Extra class exam. Charlie lent me his CW
generator when we worked on The Guiding Light and encouraged me to
stick with it. It was always a pleasure to see him each year at the
Swan Club luncheons.

May he rest in peace.
