A final call for Bruce Manser, N9KGR of Cleveland, WI was held on Jan. 21, 2023. The ceremonial farewell was conducted by Midwest Classic Radio Net manager Harry N9CQX.
Bruce was a long-time restorer, collector, and user of classic radio equipment and was active on midwest AM radio nets. He attended many area hamfests since the 1990s and often passed along excess gear to encourage others in the hobby. Bruce lived near Lake Michigan but had connections to Iowa and enjoyed small-scale farming on the "back forty" and keeping the necessary equipment in good shape. He was known as a fair dealer who was always willing to lend a hand to area AM operators with a repair or new project, and will be missed by all who knew him.
