|The Hoosier DX and Contest Club is an amateur

DX. Major club activities include sponsoring the Indiana QSO Party, Field
Day, maintaining the network of DX clusters in the area and providing

On April 11, 2016, one of our longest-term members (and secretary/treasurer for essentially forever), Mike Goode N9NS passed away.
About a month previously, Mike suffered some vision problems, and the cause was found to be a brain tumor. Surgery quickly followed and seemed to be successful. A course of radiation and chemo therapy was ordered and that was going well. Mike reported having no immediate symptoms or side effects. As anyone who knew Mike would expect, he was still on the air and actively chasing DX every day.
So long, old friend. You will be missed.
