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"...?

  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...
