The following news is from K5FUV, Bill Kennamer. Feel free to pass this on to your DX friends and clubs.

"DXCC Manager Bill Moore, NC1L, was seriously injured in an automobile accident about two weeks ago. His neck was broken, leaving him paralyzed from his upper body down, with limited movement of his arms. Recovery will be difficult and slow, and is not expected to be total. Bill would like to hear from his friends. He is currently in the Mount Sinai Rehab Hospital in Hartford, but cards and well wishes should be sent to 92 Reservoir Rd, Newington, CT 06111".

Friday K5FUV, Bill Kennamer, and I visited Bill at the rehab hospital. We spent a few minutes with NC1L, Bill, who was extremely glad to see us. I gave him one of the ARRL Centennial Convention coins and told him how successful the event was going. He was very happy to hear the news and the greetings from his friends. Billís sister-in-law Gina was there in the hospital and asked us to tell Billís friends that he would love to hear from them. So if possible letís all show Bill our love and concern for our dear friend by sending him our QSL with good wishes. I know Bill and the family would greatly appreciate your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

Anyone who has had anything to do with DXCC probably knows Bill Moore.

A couple of weeks ago, Bill got into a bad car crash and is now paralyzed with only limited movement in his arms. It will be a slow and painful recovery, if at all.

Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.

Also, if you can, send him a QSL card. He would appreciate the support.

I'm not involved at all in DXCC but that's awful and I hope he recovers well.
