Bob Arnold of Cumbre DX, N2JEU, has died

Cumbre DX and "DXing with Cumbre" have lost a very good friend. Bob Arnold, N2JEU, who ran Cumbre DX's web and e-mail servers, and who also put the programs on iTunes for us, is a Silent Key at the age of only 58. We at Cumbre are heartbroken at this news, and send our sympathy to Bob's family and friends. "DXing with Cumbre" will continue on the air and WHR streaming audio, but the website, e-mail list and iTunes are gone for now. For those who can get to his funeral on Friday in Canastota, near Syracuse NY, details are available at the obituary link.
Please feel free to share the news, since the Cumbre DX list is gone with Bob's death. We thank Bob for all he did for us, and we know he'll be very much missed in the radio community.

Alokesh Gupta comments : Shocked to hear about this ......personal loss for me, he was a good friend of mine & all these years of moderating cumbre dx email list he always responded swiftly whenever there was a problem. My deepest sympathies & I very deeply regret the loss but am compelled to accept that being humans we all have to surrender to the inevitable and all good things must come to an end. "May he attain Eternal Bliss !"
