ARLX008 West Virginia Section Manager Charles Hardy, WV8CH (SK)

ARRL West Virginia Section Manager Charles Hardy, WV8CH (ex-KD8MOA),
of Fayetteville, died June 14, apparently as the result of an
accidental electrocution while he was working on an antenna at his
home. He was 50 and had been a radio amateur since 2008.

Hardy became West Virginia SM in October 2013, and he was the only
candidate to continue in that position for another 2-year term. He
was very active in the National Traffic System (NTS) 8th Region Net
and had served as West Virginia Section Traffic Manager since 2012,
a post he continued to hold when he became SM. He also was an ARRL
Official Observer and had served since 2009 as a District Emergency
Coordinator for District 7.

Hardy was the President of the Plateau Amateur Radio Association
(PARA) and of the Summit Repeater Association.

Survivors include his wife, Jane, WV8JH.
