Ken WV1Y became a Silent Key

It is really hard for me to report this however Ken WV1Y became a Silent Key on 9/8. I am sure that a lot of you knew and worked Ken. Ken was an old timer on the Net and would go out of his way to help anyone. Ken was Legally Blind and still managed to operate his station. He had a Friend, Kathy Dale who helped Ken for over 20 years and did all of his QSL Cards. I received and email forwarded from her by Frosty about Ken,s passing. God Bless Ken you will be missed. Dave KJ8V

From: N1KL – I got to know Kenny over the last few years, and will truly miss him on the net. He was an amazing asset to our net, putting the state of Rhode Island on the net for so, so many of us, especially those working on their basic award. Despite his disability, he persevered, and with the help of his assistant, Kathy, was able to get QSL cards out to all those who needed RI for their basic award.

He once told me that he got a kick out of it, whenever the NCS running the net on any given night, would refer to him as “The Voice of Rhode Island” ! And sure enough, he truly was.

Kenny was a dedicated GERATOLer, and a great gentleman. We shall miss him immensely. For those not familiar with Ken, I have re-posted the FEATURE we ran on him several years ago. RIP Kenny

Your friend, Kevin – N1KL

JULY Geratol Silent Keys UPDATED

After a go around with the ARRL I have gotten the Silent Keys updated. I posted the others because the ARRL had not updated their Version of the Silent Key listing in the July issue. It was still the June listing. With that said there is only one Geratoler Silent Key in the July issue W4YH Lee # 198 Lee Rest in piece Lee you will be missed. Dave KJ8V.

As a side note, if you receive QST in the Postal mail be careful to check what month you are reading is correct. I received my July issue 3 weeks ago and some of the articles were from the June issue and reprinted in the July issue. That is exactly what happened withe Silent Keys. Dave KJ8V
