Silent Key: Richard Gerber K9RAG

From Mike Palmer N9FEB:

K9RAG, Richard Gerber, was known widely across Marion County on the air. He was always there to share his opinion, as others did.
Richard was active in most of the ham radio assisted operating events such as the Mini Marathon, 500 Festival Parade, ADA Tour-de-Cure, Indianapolis Half Marathon, along with others.

He hung out on the 146.700 Repeater and was very active with Skywarn, mostly being the liaison from the local net on the 146.760 to the central Indiana net on the 146.970.
