I am so sorry to hear that Bernie, VE1UT, has become a Silent Key.

When I lived in Elizabeth City, NC, I perpetually looked for him on 2 meters.

We achieved Our first 2m QSO was on 09june1978 when I was still K1FJM.

May Bernie continue to provide NB section on VHF & up from his new location on high.

He was a great guy and would always take some time to chat.. RIP Bernie!!
