Bob Heil, K9EID, passes away, 3/1/2024!

I was wondering why my phone was pinging-away late last night. Now, I know. https://www.radioworld.com/news-and-business/headlines/audio-innovator-bob-heil-dies
Never did an actual on-air QSO with him, since everytime he'd put his call out, there would be a swamp of a pile-up. Only, e-mailed corresponded. He'll be missed in the Amateur Radio and music realms for sure.
Even, a better write-up of him here.  https://fohonline.com/featured/in-memoriam-bob-heil-1940-2024/

I was asked, yet another weird question, of how I would like to be buried, when I finally bite the big one. The answer was actually pretty easy. Face-down, like a certain historical figure in the late 1980's, (I will not mention who, but some of you will get it, and that's enough.) Why??? It would be a burial that will satisfy everyone: (1) My enemies will say that it will show me where to go. (2) On the same point, I can have my enemies kiss my butt. (3) It will temporarily give someone a place to park a bicycle. See??? A WIN / WIN for everyone.
