Andrew A. Andros, W0LTE, SK: The co-founder of Hy-Gain, Andrew "Andy" Andros, W0LTE, of Houston, Texas, died January 23 2001. He was 76. Andy and his brother, Ted, W0URN, founded Hy-Gain Electronics in 1949 with $6, their dad's ladder and Ted's car. Andy Andros designed the company's TH-3 triband trap beam, which became an instant success. A succession of multiband beams and verticals followed. The Hy-Gain LP-13-30 log periodic antenna, designed for MARS and installed at military locations worldwide, also found its way to the rooftop of many embassies. At its height, Hy-Gain, which was headquartered in Lincoln, Nebraska, was a multi-million dollar corporation employing thousands. Hy-Gain, which had been owned by Telex, was purchased in 1999 by MFJ Enterprises.--Ted Andros, W0URN, The Houston Chronicle.
