Who was Lucille Fazi Falzone?

W9KMD Working a Station

Lucille was a member of the Sangamon Valley Radio Club in the 1950s and 1960s.  She was truly a pioneer in the male dominated amateur radio community in Springfield and was highly regarded by many who knew her.  Lucille was also very involved in the local P.T.A. and often hosted radio events for the youngsters in several Springfield area schools. She is pictured here working a Field Day station and making contacts. Gotta love her beautifully painted fingernails!  The Sangamon Valley Radio Club is honored to operate the Ladies Net in her memory.
