Silent Key: Pat 8P6BT

To the family and friends of 8P6BT Pat our hearth felt sympathy.

We are suffering grievous loss on his passing,

Only on Wednesday of this week did 8P6NE Tony requested that we of the CEWN to offer intercessory Prayers on his behalf.

From the Radio Amateurs Fraternities of the Region, the J6 Amateur Radio operators of St. Lucia, from the members of the Caribbean Emergency and Weather Net:

Pat was a true Ambassador and a wealth of information, and example of good operating practice.

Pat made contributions to the Antilles Net from P43/44, to the Antilles Emergency and Weather Net which evolved and is now known as the Caribbean Emergency and Weather Net (CEWN).

Pat was an icon on weather and emergency procedures.

Pat was a true patriot of the Greatest of all Scientific Hobbies.

There many hams today who emulated and followed in the footsteps of 8P6BT PAT.

I ask all stations on frequency standby for 1 minute of silence for our fellow FRATERNITY, BROTHER and FRIEND.


73 Pat, May the propagation always be good!
