Another Key Goes Silent

25 Apr

It is with the deepest sadness that I report the loss of another wonderful operator and long ago acquaintance. Last evening on CW Ops message reflector came this news:

Vince K5VT

Vince passed away at 11:30 this morning as a result of Leukemia.
A very sad day.

I refer to these fellows as “Beacons in my night” because so many have delighted, entertained and supplied many hours of enjoyment just in the listening to their deft handling of “The Deserving” from a far off new one. Much of this action must have come when they were frightfully fatigued and perhaps only hearing whispers of signals, however, as long as a signal was discernible they stayed. 73 Vince and thank you for all the wonderful memories.

Thanks for reading my Blog. Best, Chas W5PG
