Making AM GREAT Again!


« on: March 01, 2024, 03:40:34 AM »

Was just informed through an 11 meter friend that Brandon passed away recently.

He used to be a regular fixture here back years ago so I figured people may want to know.

You never know what demons someone is trying to hold back


RIP Brandon.

I didn't know Brandon but I often listened to him on AM as his signal here in Virginia was quite strong. He seemed like a nice fellow. Condolences to his family and friends.

I was thinking about Brandon the other day and wondered what had become of him.  We used to talk quite often on 75 and visited at the Jackson, Ms. hamfest. Brandon was a good guy, very knowledgeable in ham radio and totally adored his  daughter Brianna.  My condolences to his family.  He will be missed!

My condolences too. He was way too young to go and best wishes for this family.

Very sorry to see this. Brandon and I used to chat on 40 and sometimes 80m about raising our young daughters in today's world, as well as radio. He truly loved being a dad and very much enjoyed all things radio. Seemed he was always up to some new project, trying some new antenna design, or whatever caught his attention then. Been a while since we talked, so no idea if he was sick, had an accident at work, or what. I hope his soul has found peace.

Shane:

I am sorry to hear of Brandon's passing. While we did not QSO on the air, we did email.

As a fellow ham from Louisiana, there are not too many AM'ers in the Gulf South.

RIP Brandon

Wow. So sorry to hear this. Talked to Brandon quite a few time on 40 meter and a few times on 75 in the past. Gone too soon.  Cry
