Silent Keys

The term 'Silent Key' comes from the ARRL 'Amateur Radio Relay League'.
ARRL
It is a term of respect for a radio operator who has passed away and can
no longer be heard on the air waves around the world
transmitting on his/her key
morse key

Here we are adopting this term for the passing of our endeared friends
who having passed away can no longer be at their keyboard
chatting in our international chat room.

May they each rest in the peace of our Lord!
