Fondatorul rețelei AMPR și coordonatorul ei din 1980 încoace, Brian Kantor, WB6CYT, s-a stins ieri din viață, în San Diego, California.
Radioamatorismul a mai pierdut pe unul din monstrii sai sacrii.
Ramai cu bine Brian, o sa ne lipsesti insa nu te vom uita.
Iata anunțul făcut de Phil Karn, KA9Q, astazi:
Cod: Selectaţi tot
I have very sad news. My good friend, Brian Kantor, WB6CYT
suddenly passed away this week at his home in San Diego, California.
Brian retired only two years ago after 47 years of service on the staff
at the University of California San Diego (UCSD). Way back in the mid
1980s, Brian and I founded AMPRnet, the TCP/IP over amateur radio
network. He continued to manage it until his passing.
Brian recently created and served as chair and CEO of Amateur Radio
Digital Communications (ARDC), a charitable foundation funded by the
sale of unused AMPRnet IPv4 addresses. ARDC promotes STEM education and
amateur radio digital development through scholarships and by funding
the development of open source hardware and software.
Brian will be sorely missed and impossible to replace. Memorial
arrangements will be announced when known.
Phil Karn, KA9Q
