*/Hello Fellow Ham Friends,/*
*/It was with great sorrow just now as I learned that my dear friend, 
Alan Levine WA5LQZ has become a "Silent Key".  I have know Alan for lots 
of years and he was always ready and willing to give assistance and to 
offer good sound advise as various issues would pop up.  We have lost a 
great man that will certainly be missed by the entire ham community.  
Likewise, he will be missed by his family and all his loved ones in the 
community where he lived./*

Alan Levine WA5LQZ SK

Some of our AARA members probably remember Alan, he attended some of our 
club meetings and lectured about ARES and Digital Communications he was 
an EXPERT when it came to these fields.  He was a devoted amateur 
operator and a few years ago he received the "Ham of the Year Award" for 
the ARRL Louisiana Section.  When a disaster arose, he was always there 
to help out even when his health was failing.  We will miss him 
greatly.  Our prayers go out to Alan and his Family.

I will send out e-mails on funeral arrangements as soon as I get them.
