In memory of Ted Leonard W3VG

Ted Leonard, W3VG (SK)
Aug. 3, 1946 – July 10, 2020

Ted was an active member of the ham radio community, teaching various amateur radio licensing classes, testing and maintaining repeaters in the local region, and elmering new hams. He enjoyed experimenting with new digital radio technologies and helping new hams get up and running. Ted started his DSTAR adventure in 2014, enlisting the help of Tyler Morris, N3TDM. Together we struggled to get a repeater functioning, but he kept pushing forward. Eventually the KC3ESS repeater was created in 2015. Since then the repeater has gone through many software and hardware iterations. Ted was more than just a fellow ham to me, he was a good friend and mentor. He was an asset and valuable resource for everyone in the local ham radio community.
