    it was very sad to read that Rolf, PY1RO, has passed away. I had several 160m qso's and I will always remember his big signal when he put up a 160m loop on one of the high rise buildings.
    We all will miss him!
    Here is a picture of him and his wife. I took it when we met him in Rio. There are not many pictures around, so maybe you want to use it.
