Nancy Kott WZ8C - #379
From Nancy's husband Tim:
My wife Nancy passed away Sunday March 2, 2014. She endured many years of medical challenges and is now resting peacefully. She is leaving a empty spot in my heart as I'm sure it is the same for all of you. Thank you for the outpouring of sympathy that I have already received. She has touched so many people around the world.
I am enclosing a link to her brief obit. There are no services planned at this time. She is being cremated at this time per her wishes.
Hill Funeral Home, MI
Obituary and guestbook are available on the link above.

What is FISTS?
FISTS is a well established and recognized CW (Morse Code) organization in the world of amateur radio. Founded in 1987 by Geo Longden, G3ZQS, it now has a world-wide membership in the thousands and growing daily.
1. To further the use of CW on the amateur bands.
2. To encourage newcomers to the CW mode.
3. To engender friendship within the membership.
How FISTS got its name, from our late founder, Geo G3ZQS (Silent Key).
"I used to be a member of TOPS before it went out. Quote on their banner was "Where FISTS Make Friends". A "FIST", as you know, is nothing more than a CW ops' reference to another ops' keying characteristic. Phil (TOPS founder/sec) was delighted when I told him of the connection though he was later to follow his XYL and his beloved dog, but I will never forget the enthusiasm which came back from his old vibro. 73 de Geo"
A love of Morse code and a concern for its perpetuation.
