The passing of FiftyOneFifty

It is with deep sadness we announce that another of our hosts and friends Donald Grier, known to us as FiftyOneFifty, has passed away.

FiftyOneFifty's frat brother Randy Hall has written an lovely piece. The team at Linuxlugcast are preparing our own tribute if you want to contribute an audio file you can email Honkeymagoo or join the show.

Our thoughts go out to his friends and family at this difficult time.

Good timing; my first Kenwood rig (2m) arrives tomorrow on the Brown Truck of Joy.

Currently have a Baofeng UV-5R which is an incredible value for the money. Really like it.
