    WAYNE'S RIVER, NH - Friends plan to celebrate the ham radio legacy of Arnold Leddington this weekend in his small hometown, where he transmitted the dots and dashes of Morse Code for more than 60 years.

    "I'm really happy for him," said Fredrick Worthingshire. "He was a ham's ham. And, it's not often that you see an 76-year-old man begin a new hobby."

    Leddington recently announced that he has been quietly dyeing various fabrics for about three weeks now.

    "It's true, I've made my last QSO," said the ham. "But you're not rid of me yet!"

    He plans to sell his hand-colored doilies, hats, and denim jackets at area hamfests.
