ARRL Headquarters Flags at Half-Staff to Honor Connecticut Firefighter, KB1YYG/SK

ARRL logoARRL CEO David Minster, NA2AA, writes on August 12, 2021:

It is tough when we lose young hams.  

An historic building in nearby New Hartford went to a 3-alarm fire on Tuesday morning.

As a result of risking his life to fight the fire, 26-year-old Burlington firefighter, Colin J. Mcfadden, KB1YYG, from Bristol, Connecticut has died from an injury he sustained.

Colin was an ARRL member.

We are flying the ARRL HQ flags at half-staff in acknowledgement and appreciation of his bravery and membership.

David Minster, NA2AA, CEO
