    I was so sorry to learn of Frank’s passing. As a FCC licensed Extra Class amateur (ham) radio operator I did a lot of business with Frank over the years at the Taylorsville Radio Shack store. Also, I worked with Frank as a Quality Control Tester (QC1) at the CommScope factory in Claremont. Frank was a QC Tech that made sure all of the QC’s test equipment was calibrated and ready to use at the start of every shift. My sincere condolences to the family of Frank. I am so sorry for your loss.
