    K7GEX - Herbert Anderson - Edmonds - USA

    K7GEX, Herbert "Andy" Anderson from Edmonds, Washington, USA died 5 February 2019, after a lengthy illness at the age of 84.
    He was an ARRL Life member.
    His friend VA7FJT, Andy Neimers, says Anderson was "the godfather of the Latvian Amateur Radio League, LRAL," and a founding member of the Latvians Worldwide Roundtable Net.
    He sent tens of thousands of dollars of gear to get the LRAL running in the early 1990s, including a 2M repeater in Vidzeme Province in Latvia.
    He was an unofficial coach for Latvian teams at every World Radio Team Competition event.
    As a youth he was a political refugee, went to the US and enlisted in the US Army Special Forces, serving as a Green Beret in Vietnam.
