Ralph E. Shorts, Sr. (K5SHO)
Aug 18, 2016
Ralph Shorts, Radio Ralph as he was known, became a silent key on just before noon on 18 Aug 2016. Ralph was a knowledgeable, friendly helpful person and one of the great guys to get into a rag chew. Ralph liked to tinker with radios and antennas. He would offer suggestions to you if you were having a problem with something. El Paso lost a great ham, rest in peace friend.

Radio shop when he lived here in PA. I spent a
lot of money there. He moved to El Paso,TX and
we would hook up on 20m thru the Displaced
Peoria Group.He will sadly missed.
