Chartered February 15, 1962
QCWA Chapter 12 meets on the 3rd Saturday every month at Noon at the
Piccadilly American Cooking restaurant at 8301 West Flagler Street in Miami.
The Andy Clark Chapter 12 was charted February 15th 1962 as the Southeast

The Andy Clark Chapter 12 in Andy's Memory. Andy became a silent key on

Andy was born in Kansas on May 21st 1923. He was first licensed as W9KCS at
the age of 16. He joined the US Navy during world War II and lost several
fingers during a accident on shipboard.
He founded and published "Florida Skip", a ham magazine that carried the
news of all the Ham activities in the state of Florida. He was a life member
of QCWA and ARRL. He was a FCC section Emergency Coordinator in addition to
being Chairman of the Community Red Cross. He was employed for many years
as a radio operator at Aeronautical Radio. He was President of Chapter 12
many times and served as its guiding light.
Public Service was always a word he associated with ham radio. He was a
Florida legend in Amateur Radio and our chapter felt we needed to honor Andy
by naming our chapter after him.
