I was devastated to learn today that Graham is now Silent Key.
He died a fortnight ago unexpectedly during heart surgery.
Pat, his widow, told me that he was cheerful and joking as he went to theatre,
a true measure of the man.
We have been friends for years – many hours were spent chatting on Cardigan Bay Radio Ch03 and also via landline (thanks BT!).
My Oceanspan VII Tx & Mercury Rx were used to say goodbye to GPK on 500kHz, a very special moment with Graham on the key at the other end.
A true friend and a gentleman of the ether.
I treasure his memory and the visits to GPK to meet him face to face.
I am sure many ROA members will have wkd him on the key at GPK.
