Congratulations to all! Thank you, Karl, for the great write up and announcement of the changes at Lectrosonics. I sure hope the part about Larry "continuing his presence on industry-related social media sites" (that would be us here at JWSOUND) is true --- Larry has been a welcomed participant here, helping all of us with everything relating to wireless technology, even for those of us who don't necessarily use Lectro products. 


Have a great time in retirement Larry, please do check in here every once in awhile, you will always be welcome.

I would just like to say thank you for the all you have done, the advancements that have made what we do even possible. This doesn't only go out to Larry, Karl and Gordon, but the whole team, past, present and future that make this all happen.
