W4KKP Charles C Kayhart an 105-year-old

ARRL member, Cliff Kayhart, W4KKP, of White Rock, South Carolina, is claiming the title of “World’s Oldest Operating Ham.”

No official record of such milestones exists, but ARRL is not aware of any radio amateurs senior to Kayhart, and he is now quite likely the oldest active ham at least in the US.

Early this year, Charlie Hellman, W2RP, died at 106; he also may have been the longest licensed.
Hellman outlived the former “oldest US ham,” Harry Wolf, W6NKT, by 8 days.

Wolf was a couple of weeks shy of turning 108. Kayhart now lives at The Heritage at Lowman Home.
