OK, now, let's be honest here: we've ALL had close calls - at one time, or another - that very nearly made us join the ranks of the Silent Keys listed! So let's get "clean" & share this with others: what, specifically, was YOUR "...near miss"...?
[303 votes since 2016-08-29]
  Mine was electrical, i.e with the household AC mains, as detailed here...
  Mine was way up on high, whilst in the process of doing some antenna work, as detailed here...
  Mine was while I was working on a particular piece of gear on the work bench, as detailed here...
  Mine was while trying-out my newly-installed mobile set-up, as detailed here...
  Mine was a result of a "...close encounter of the WORST kind" (with a NON-Ham) that I had while engaged in a Ham radio project, as detailed here...
  Mine was a combination of unfortunate flooks --- the sum total of which COULD have spelled disaster for me! --- as detailed here...
  Mine is almost too unbelievable to imagine, as detailed here...
