[Admin note: from the Drake reflector]

Amateur Radio pioneer Leo Meyerson, W0GFQ, will be celebrating his
100th birthday on February 24.  For you youngsters who may not know
who Leo is, he was founder of World Radio Laboratories (WRL) and
manufactured a number of now classic transmitters and other
products.  That included the Globe Scout and Globe Chief 90 some of
us, me included, cut our Novice teeth on back in the 1950’s.

QCWA Chapter 154 in West Palm Springs is having a party honoring
Leo’s birthday and they’ve asked that his friends and fans send him a
QSL card with “Happy 100th Birthday Leo” on it.  Send it to:

Leo Meyerson, W0GFQ
19 Park Lane
Rancho Mirage, CA 92270

Also, on February 23-24 there will be a Special Event station, W0G,
to commemorate Leo’s birthday on 14,265 Kc. from 1800Z to 2359Z each day.

VY 73,

  1. Yep… I was a Globe Scout guy. 50 – 75 watts with pi-network output tuning to a windom antenna. CW and AM of course. Wow, I would never have believed Leo M was still alive. TNX for the posting. 73!
