On Friday, September 18, 2020, Charle’s daughter Katherine, let the Rare Ones of New Orleans and all its Associate Members know her father passed away after battling a long illness. It is with a very heavy heart we send out deepest condolences to Charlie’s Family.
Charlie supported the Rare Ones of New Orleans with his big signal from Regan, Tennessee and with his gentle friendly nature. His love for amateur radio, model airplanes, and painting were just a few of his many interest. I had the pleasure of meeting Charlie at the Huntsville Hamfest and shared a great lunch at the only Cajun restaurant in Huntsville. During that visit Charlie gave me two of his paintings. They were paintings of ducks flying in the wild. I framed both of this paintings and hung them at my fishing and hunting camp in Myrtle Grove, Louisiana. Every time I pass those paintings I think of Charlie and all the great conversations we had on 40 Meters.
He was a good friend to me personally and of all the Rare Ones of New Orleans. He was beloved by all who knew him and will be sorely missed.
As we look up to the heavens above, we salute Charlie with a Big 73 from the Rare Ones of New Orleans.
Howard, K9HSE, has worked hard to make all 6 contacts with the Rare Ones of New Orleans to achieve his Associate Membership. Howard resides in Charleston, IL and is quite the amateur radio operator. We always love Howard checking in with the Rare Ones.

Congratulations are in order for Mike Callahan for becoming Associate Member 194 of the Rare Ones’ of New Orleans. Mike is from Rush City, MN and is an avid fisherman and hunter! Of course, living in Minnesota, the Land of 10,000 Lakes is hard not to be an avid fisherman. We appreciate Mike’s support of the Rare Ones’ of New Orleans and welcome him as an Associate Member. One of these days, Mike will have to make is down to Louisiana, the Sportsman’s Paradise, for a little hunting and fishing – cajun style!
