Silent Key – Doug Gray VE7DNG

We are sad to announce that Doug Gray became a Silent Key on Monday, February 11, 2013 while in Palliative Care in Bastion after a long illness. There will be no formal service, but Doug’s wife Shirley has indicated that in a few weeks, there will be a small gathering of radio amateurs who have known Doug well. We will keep you informed.

1979: Silent Key Ed Ginger VE7BYN

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.
