I'm saddened to read of Stan's passing. I first
met him in 1980 or so at Canon AFB. I was the Land Mobile Radio
TRCO (Techinal Representative to the Contracting Officer) in the
20th Communications Squadron, one of many positions I held over
nine years and two tours there. Stan was a sales consultant for
Motorola. The Artesia shop (WB5AOX worked there then) won the
LMR contact. Stan and I worked closely together. He always
enjoyed his visits to Canon since we were both amateur radio
operators. He he was a generous, kind soul who who helped many
hams. I and others will miss him and his many stories.

Thanks to Ed, N5JEH, for alerting me that Stan, W5ZF,
became a silent key on 22 January 2020. Calls to the
known home phone result in a recording stating the phone
has been temporarily disconnected. Ed has not been able
to get any additional info and there is no known contact
info to any family members. If anyone knows of additional
information please post it to the NMVHFS groups
Stan was very active on 6M and was often referred to as
the Albuquerque 6M beacon by Lance, W7GJ. If there was
an opening on 6M Stan was probably one of the first in the
ABQ area to know of it. Stan never ran more that 100W to
a pair of M2INC HO LOOPS however he had a number of JA
stations in his log and approximately 45 entities worked.
Stan completed WAS on 6M several years ago. He had worked
Remi, FK8CE, a number of years before I was able to do the
same. Stan was an excellent CW op, his preferred
operating mode. Stan was a long time DXer and past member
of the Albuquerque DX Association and had achieved DXCC
Honor Roll. Stan was first licensed as W6BCT in the Los
Angeles, CA in Nov 1947. He was a member of A1-OPR club.
His biography on QRZ.COM
I am sure many of us will miss his presence on 6M.
