On June 11, 2015, the amateur radio community lost a well-known media voice, when Bill Pasternak, WA6ITF passed away following a period of illness. Bill was co-founder (with Jim Hendershot, WA6VQP) of Amateur Radio Newsline™ (formerly The Westlink Report) way back in 1976. He was also the originator of the Young Ham of the Year Award. Bill primarily remained behind the scenes, however he was sometimes heard as a reporter on Newsline itself, which airs Sundays at 8:00 PM on the 147.000 repeater. As SEMARA extends its sympathy to Bill’s family, please take a moment to view this video tribute to Bill on the Amateur Radio Newsline™ site.
