Les Borst (KC0NC) and Casey Stafford (W0TBJ) – Silent Keys

George Ebner (KA5GBK), manager of the Rocky Mountain RV Service Net, informs the Club/Net:

It is a sad time for us as two of our members became silent keys. Les KCØNC became a silent key on the 16th of June after a long battle with health issues. Les was a very strong asset to the net by his daily contribution by taking pre-net check-ins as well as having his own morning as net control.

Casey, WØTBJ, became a silent key on Sept. 17, 2017. He was a net control for many, many years until he retired about two years ago.

These two men will be sorely missed.
