CQ CQ CQ KE5RY CQ CQ CQ KE5RY….
KE5RY went silent key a few days ago, I just found out last night. Kerry Friddell was a regular on the Saltgrass Link Network. He was my first contact on Saltgrass. I happen to be going to the airport late at night to pickup my daughter who was coming home from a summer job. I turned on my HT, put out my Monitoring call, and back came Kerry. I spoke to him pretty regularly, but then again he was happy to talk to anyone on the air. He did a lot for the hobby by not being discriminate on who he talked to or what about. He was an interesting person to just have some ragchew with. He will be missed.
Final call, CQ CQ CQ KE5RY…73 Kerry, KG5AXF, clear.
