DAVID GILLESPIE – W4LHQ
SECTION EMERGENCY COORDINATOR
My grandfather, the original W4LHQ, was active in amateur radio before WWII. He transmitted from a Belgium hospital after the war to family in West Virginia. He wasn’t a patient, he was the medical director. When he returned to the states he was issued the W4 call. My Great Uncle George Gehres, WA4JJX (SK) was another big influence. I am proud to continue the family tradition.
