William "Bill" Worley (W4CUX)

December 29, 2012

Bill and I worked a weekly CW schedule on 3.543 Mhz(3.563 alternate if QRL) for 3 years and 3 months until his untimely death due to pancreatic cancer. Bill had contacted me because he saw my name on the SKCC Elmer List and we became great friends over all the QSOs we had.

One month after Bill's passing on I was contacted via email by W4CJV Wayne to tell me he had some items that Bill had requested he send to me in the event of his death. Bill willed to me a single lever Vibroplex Chrome Deluxe Vibrokeyer, a Hendricks PFR-3A QRP 3 band transceiver (20, 30, & 40 meter bands) he had built from a kit with a attached W5JH Baby Black Widow CW iambic key, and a 50 ohm SMT dummy load. The PFR-3A also has a built in manual antenna tuner hence the A in the model number. I will treasure these for as long as I live!
