The Admiral Jet
crossed the bar then went across
the rainbow bridge on June 14, 2021. He was a 1Ø
year old Miniature Schnauzer and mascot for the
USCG Amateur Radio Net. He would sit quietly in
his chair listening unless there was a squirrel
or cat that encroched on his turf. Then his
strong voice would be heard world wide with full
modulation of the radio gear. He was a faithful
friend and his departure has left a huge void at
Fair winds and following seas. RIP Admiral Jet!
