Wow. I am so sorry to hear of the death of our friend Don Myslewski K3CHD. Don 
was a huge supporter of amateur radio. Especially back in the 1970's and 
80's. He was, for sure,
a past vice president of our club the Two Rivers ARC. From my memory, 
some of his ham radio activities included:

A.R.R.L. Western Pennsylvania Section Communications Manager in the mid to late 1970's.
TRARC club Member, and served on the Board of Directors many times. Founding member of the Irwin Area Amateur Radio Association. Served on the board of directors of the Breezeshooters ARC.
Loved participating in the Two Rivers ARC Thursday Night 10 Meter Net, and the Breezeshooters 10 Meter Net. Was very active in the early days of 2 meter repeaters in the Pittsburgh area. Liked and used vintage AM transmitters and receivers.
Operated a VLF Beacon system many years ago. The last time that I saw and talked to Don was at an IAARA Picnic about two years ago Below is a copy of his obituary as it appeared in the Tribune Review newspaper today December 27th. Thanks Bob AG3U for spotting, and reporting this in the Greensburg Tribune Review newspaper. RIP old friend. 73 de Chuck W3ON
