Contest team killed in air crash

Four Amateur Radio operators are dead following the crash of their small aircraft as it left the runway in Jedburg, South Carolina, about 20 miles northwest of Charleston. The plane — piloted and owned by Peter Radding, W2GJ — carried Ed Steeble, K3IXD, Dallas Carter, W3PP, and Randy Hargenrader, K4QO. The four men were on their way to the Bahamas to operate in this weekend’s CQ World Wide Phone Contest as C6APR, competing in the Multi/2 category.

All members of Radio Amateurs of Canada and members of the amateur radio contesting community around the world are sadden by this tragic event and send their thoughts and prayers to the families and friends of members of C6APR.
