News from the North
special release 23rd October 2014
sent to undisclosed recipients

Paul Kay (ex VK4DJ) SK

It is my sad duty to report yet another silent key
Paul Kay, formerly VK4DJ and a former member of The Townsville Amateur Radio Club Inc.
went Silent Key on the NSW Central Coast during the evening of Thursday 22nd October 2014
succumbing to a short fight with pancreatic cancer.
Paul was a brilliant radio technician, having worked in the design and assembly lines
of a number of radio equipment manufacturers including Philips TMC.
In his spare time he designed and built valve based linear amplifiers for the high end of HF
and also for VHF - amplifiers renown for their reliability and precision.
Paul contributed to Amateur Radio also through many years of volunteering to help
during Jamboree On The Air.
Pauls passing is a big loss to our hobby. Vale Paul Kay, Silent Key
