We are sad to inform you that John VE7ASC became a Silent Key at Shuswap Lake General Hospital on Saturday, February 3, 2013. Daryl Chipman VA7DBC is in contact with John’s family. As soon as any update is received, we will post the information here as a revision to this post.
The first Silent Key reference found in our records was a Notice of a Memorial Service being held in April 1979 for Ed Ginger VE7BYN. Of special note is that the VE7BYN call is now presently held by Rick Ginger who relocated to his home town of Sicamous many years later, giving up his American call upon completion of the 2005 Basic Qualification Course run by SARC.
