Kurt NI6W/K7NV at XE2SI in 1984

It is with heavy heart that we report the passing of Kurt Andress, K7NV (formerly NI6W). He passed away in his sleep at home in Nevada on Thursday, August 25. Kurt had been known as an excellent engineer and had helped many west coast hams with their antennas and towers over the years. Kurt (then NI6W) joined the ARRL Contest Advisory Committee (CAC) in September of 1990, replacing outgoing rep Marty, N6VI. (Not sure how long he served on the CAC.)
