Ken Hatton, G3VBA became Silent Key on 5 April 2019.
He became GB2RS Manager in January 2014 and dealt with the paperwork for volunteer newsreaders. He became interested in amateur radio as a schoolboy and had been licensed for 53 years.
A member of Warrington ARC, he served as their secretary for a number of years. He maintained his interests in HF, VHF, UHF, digital voice and data modes throughout his life. At one point he spent a great deal of his time helping to create Word files of many of the hand-written files in the RSGB archive.
Rest in peace Ken.
