This is Kathy, Bill's wife Bill left a lot of notes and parts and I would like to put them in the right hands. I just want to give them all to one person and let that person decide what to do. Just respond to this post.

My condolences, Kathy. I'll always remember Bill's helpfulness and generosity. I had the joy of corresponding with him about sourcing parts while he was developing the "kit" or set of parts for the 6888 transmitter. I unexpectedly received a tube in the mail from him. He had kept my address from a previous order.

Hi Kathy,

Nancy and I met you and Bill last November, it was a pleasure and we regret not having spent more time with you two.
Remember you and I carrying the old radio off the porch?

We are sorry to hear the news about Bill passing, if we can help you in any way, let me know.
I still have your address and Bill's phone number, please reply private message if you wish.

Thanks,
Mark

Sorry for your loss, Bill was a great guy.

Worked with him on transmitter builds, he supplied many of the parts.

We have lost a true Statesman. How many people has Bill touched with his efforts?

Bill had sent me parts for a project some years back, before I even paid him. A true loss to the community.

My deepest condolences.

Hello again, Ms.Kathy.
Since your post got moved to the clubhouse, I thought I might be bold and abide by the rules of 'Radio Classified',
and post "I'll take it", unless you see fit for someone else to get Bill's notes and parts.
I hope that I am not out of line.

Another staple of the forum gone.

Very sorry to hear.

Our condolences. Received much help from Bill when I was still struggling to learn.

So sorry to hear of Bill Hamre's passing. I worked with him a bit on getting together parts for the LM386N transmitter kits. A real gentleman.

Larry

Such a shame. He sent me a few parts for free also. A good man.

My condolences also, Kathy. We too will miss Bill. I was another recipient of the 6888 radio project. There was a slight mixup on a part and he spared no effort to get the correct part to me. Truly an asset to the group here, and I'm sure he was quite dear to you. It's always difficult to lose a mate. If there is anything I can do to help, please don't hesitate to ask. I'll do it if at all possible.
