A memorial tribute, the call letters W-2-L-Z-X belonged
to the artist's Uncle, a ham radio operator for over
60 years. He was a radio operator aboard a B-17 bomber
in WWII and a pioneer in early communications. "W2LZX"
is composed of nostalgic photographs and collaged QSL
cards, logged by ham radio operators. From Morse Code
transmissions to computer electronics, ham radio operators
have made significant contributions to international
and mass communications. The stories of W2LZX and others
like him resonate culturally, historically, and personally.
