  1. So sad to hear this news.
    N1FN’s knowledge and web site was a mine of information for me and many others in amateur radio.
    My condolences to his family at this dark time.
    He will be missed!
    RIP Marshall.

  2. Hello, I’m a recent Ham operator who is just learning Morse Code at age 73. Saying that it’s been difficult for me, is an understatement. So, in response to my many questions, I was directed to Morse Express where I found a wealth of useful information. Particularly the proper setup and tension adjustments of an antique paddle. The instructions were clearly written and concise, almost with encouragement. The result has allowed me to continue my pass of learning.
    In the end, I read of the closing of this business, and sadly, the passing of this gentleman who has continued helping others several years later, an enduring legacy that lives on.

    1. enjoyed our short QSO this a.m. on 40! sorry about my “LID” operating, havn’t had much practice. hope to work you again when i can remember the code !
