QST From the February 25th ARRL Contest Update

Sad news was received Monday morning that competitor and station host Dich Pechie KB1H suffered a heart attack and died after participating in the ARRL DX CW contest through the weekend - a huge and unexpected loss to his family and the Yankee Clipper Contest Club community. Without inferring that the contest had anything to do with his demise, it is nevertheless a good idea to take care of yourself before, during, and after these marathon radio events in which we sit at our radios for hour after hour, often foregoing good nutrition, sleep, and exercise.
