From Bill VK4ZD - PP Vernon Silent Key
It is with the greatest sadness that I advise that we have been informed that Vernon G0EGW became silent key last week on  April 2 2024. It was our privilege to have known him personally and delighted in his wit. We feel deeply for his wife Brenda in her time of loss.

73s, Phil VK2MCB
