K1UGM Silent Key

K1UGM Silent Key – Long-time WARA member Jim Morris, K1UGM, has passed away. Among other contributions, Jim donated the equipment for the 64 Echolink.  As a tribute, John, K1BOS, who now houses this equipment, arranged a day of silence for the 64 Echolink.  Jim’s fascinating story is available  at www.scitechantiques.com/resume

Jim was 80 years old when he ran up the repeater site ladder like a kid on a jungle gym and helped resolve a problem with the 64 repeater (from Fall 2008 PHI):
