Lihue FSS (LIH), Kauai, Hawaii.
Ervin Dworzack, charter member of "The Society of Airways Pioneers,"
barnstormer, and ham radio operator since 1923, likes to reminisce about the old
when a radio operator had to be self-sufficient. There were no systems
personnel, electronic maintenance technicians, or even a radio repair man to
when the equipment broke down. Some of his duties included helping the
pilot shovel snow, and occasionally he helped unload mail for delivery via rail
mail plane couldn't get through because of weather.
