W1NP - Silent Key

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Paul Laconto W1NP. Paul has been instrumental in the development and promotion of Ham Radio here on the Cape.  He was responsible for a number of programs at BARC including the Charter School Radio Explorer Post, JOTA and merit badge classes at the Scout Camp. Many of us got help from Paul when an antenna needed to be put up, a special cable needed to be made, or an event needed to be organized.

Walk to End Alzheimers - Hyannis
