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. Don became a SK in November 2019. You can see his obituary here.

Some boxes are also identified W6LCZ - Kenneth Woodrow Christensen (1918-2012). You can read his obituary here.

Don and Kenneth were brothers.
