A Place to Memorialize Your 'SK' Friends:

Many of the readers may not know about the NATIONAL SILENT KEY ARCHIVE.

This excellent resource is available for the Amateur Radio community to memorialize their Silent Key friends. Michael Carroll, N4MC, is the founder and you are invited to place birth-death years, life narratives, photographs and more about a known silent key.

Please visit this archive by going to and next 'click-on' the USA / Canada flag.

The menu area of the home page has a quick way to see if your friend has been placed into this registry. If you know the FCC call sign, a last name or QTH city you can possibly find the silent key listed.

Mike has even placed a 'research' tool for you to use to find that person not listed.

Expired FCC licenses are sometimes an indication that the licensee has become 'SK'.

Old call-books become another resource found 'on-line' that you can research for basic information.

Your QSL card collection is another resource to find potential candidates for making a new memorial. Qsl card images are also encouraged for placement.

Presently there are over 40,000 memorials you can access.
