Raffle for W4AN's Children

As many of you know, Bill Fisher W4AN -- top contester and founder of and -- recently passed away. His sudden passing was a shock to the entire ham community, and he will be greatly missed.

The W4AN Memorial Trust Fund was established to benefit Bill's two young children, Graeme and Erik. See W8JI's page for more info on this fund...

To help add funds to the Trust, we've put together a Raffle, with a great assortment of prizes. Thanks to the incredible support of the ham radio business community, we are able to offer about $6,200 in prizes, including a new ICOM IC-756PROII, generously donated by ICOM America!

Tickets will be sold at the Crowne Plaza Hotel on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights (5/13-5/15) PLUS tickets are also available on-line via a secure server, for those that can't make it to Dayton this year. The raffle drawing will take place on Saturday night (5/15) at Midnight. Need not be present to win.

For all the details, including pictures and descriptions of all the prizes, go to:

Please feel free to forward this message to others, but keep in mind the drawing is this Saturday night, May 15th, so time is of the essense. If you have any questions, please send to Thanks for your support!
