Marty was a Penn State electrical engineer, graduating in 1960. He held other degrees, including a Masters in EE and a degree in anthropology.
He lived near Annapolis, MD, but set up a contest station, W3SO, on Wopsononock Mountain west of Altoona. It is one of the highest points in central PA and the station was a force in VHF and UHF contesting.
Marty joined AVRA when it was formed. Being a member of PVRC, with whom he contested, he would nevertheless give his points for the PA QSO Party to AVRA.
PVRC moved their club contesting circle for VHF contests to the northwest so that Marty's station could be included in their point totals.
Martin Johnson, W3YOZ. SK. RIP.
