Dave Montgomery recently stated to me that Tom Rusk "cast the life preserver" when things ran amock at the transmitter site and was Felix McDonald's long-time assistant. as per dave's words:
"Tom Rusk was for a long time Felix's assistant at the transmitter, and he frequently cast the life preserver when one of the wheels ran off the road. Tom deserves high recognition for his work in maintaining the transmitter alongside Felix."
We've made reference to Tom Rusk a time or two on the blog and I never realized his importance to the engineering team at KAAY! I have to apologize, folks, sometimes you have to hit me with a hammer to get my circuits aligned, I don't make the connection at times....
Does anyone know where Tom Rusk is nowadays? The last I'd heard, he owned a station or two? Please help, as I'd like to get in touch with him and, hopefully, get some of his comments here.
Thank you! And thanks to Dave M.!
