Sonoma County Radio Amateurs - Field Day 1959 - predecessor activities to the publishing of Short Skip.
We were pleased to receive a series of early Field Day 35 mm slides.
These are from Donald E. (Don) ChristensenW6DZM and passed along by his daughter. (We have not been able to locate an obituary or information on Don, so if you have any information on Don, please pass it along. The Press Democrat obituary for Donald F. Christensen appears to be a different man.)
Some boxes are also identified W6LCZ - Kenneth Woodrow Christensen (1918-2012). You can read his obituary here.
Don and Kenneth were brothers.

Here's a history of the club. And, here's a table of the know officers and some key chairs since 1939.
SCRA held a very early Volunteer Examiner (VE) session. It is believed to be the second held in the
Western Region, and perhaps the second in the nation. Here are the VE documents from that session.
There's a great photo of the Club's station W6LFJ operating at the Red Cross at the Sonoma County
