This is CLASSIC RAIN #6 for Oct. 11, 2019. One of the resources Hap Holly, KC9RP drew upon in his early years of producing audio ham radio programming was Bill Pasternak, WA6ITF, co-founder and driving force behind Westlink Radio, known today as the Amateur Radio Newsline. One interview Bill passed along was a short 1989 interview with former Sen. Barry Goldwater, K7UGA, conducted by national science reporter and familiar voice on the Amateur Radio Newsline in the 90s, Roy Neal, K6DUE [1989 6M]. A number of the voices that became familiar to our RAIN Report listeners in the 90s were introduced to our listenership of the BEAR Information Service (BIS) in suburban Chicago in the late 80s. One of those familiar voices was Blair Alper, KA9SEQ, an Iowa ham whose ham roots were as the trustee for the so-called Lid Far 220 repeater in the Chicago suburb of Oak Park before he relocated to Iowa in the 90s. Our second item this week is his guest commentary from 1989 entitled "A Small Town Ham Radio Perspective." And that does it for Classic RAIN #6, a biweekly production of the Radio Amateur Information Network; copyright 1989-2019 RAIN, all rights reserved. We'll be back with episode #7 Oct. 25. Very 73 from the Radio Amateur Information Network; KEEP ON HAMMING!
