Silent Keys

silent key

The headphones lay silently on the desk. The glowing tubes no longer warm the room. No more late nights and early mornings listening for that weak signal. The last DX is in your log. You’ve made many friends along the way, some of which you’ve never met, but you enjoyed their company nonetheless.

It is with fondness that we remember our friends whose keys are now silent.
