Non-Fiction Book About Silent Keys
I decided the other day to write a short book, non-fiction, about the subject of silent keys and what amateur radio operators can do for their survivors once they become a silent key. While this is a sensitive subject to most hams, it’s a fact of life, as the saying goes: no one gets out alive. As with this web site, this book is meant to be a resource that amateur radio operators can use to establish an inventory of their radio equipment. In turn, this inventory can be used in making up a plan for the disposal of radio gear, including antennas, to be used by a ham’s survivors. Or, in some cases, a representative as suggested by Dino, KL0S who will oversee the liquidation of your amateur radio estate.
If you’ve ever managed or even helped a silent key’s survivors by selling off, or donating at times, a silent key’s radio gear estate, then you know how much work it can be. This can be cut down to a minimum by having both an inventory and game plan in place before there’s an absolute need for it.
So that’s what the book, A Silent Key is all about, helping folks get their radio equipment inventoried so it won’t be such as burden later on. It’s an inexpensive little book, just ninety-nine sense from my Smashwords page. What’s Smashwords? A web site that allows independent authors an outlet where they can publish their eBooks.
