Within Amateur radio there is a term that refers to operators who sadly pass away, this term is 'Silent Key'.

The term originates from the days of the early telegraph operators who used a 'Telegraph key' to send messages and information by Morse code, when they died their individual Keys and callsigns were no longer used and so fell silent.. 

This page is dedicated to the memory of past members who are no longer with us, please take a moment to join us in remembering them.
