Silent Key: Claude Cass Telles, IV (KA8RPM)

The Telles family recently donated the radio collection of Claude Cass Telles to the Fulton County Amateur Radio Club.  This was beyond the definition of generous as it will help us put equipment into the hands of new Hams, as well as raise the funds for a new repeater controller.  The following is the published obituary:
