We are very sorry to report that well known DXer and hugely respected operator, Franz DJ9ZB has gone silent key. Markus, DL1AN GDXF Treasurer provided the following sad info:
Unfortunately, I have to inform you that the honorary president of the German DX Foundation (GDXF) Franz, DJ9ZB gave up the key forever yesterday. This is just a short piece of information so far. We spoke on the phone last week – he sounded well. As soon as we know more, especially regarding the funeral, we will get back to you here. From the entire board: Franz, rest in peace!
