+ SILENT KEY + The DX community mourns the loss of Luis Chartarifsky,  XE1L,
who was stricken with a major heart attack shortly after  returning  to  San
Diego after the TX5K Clipperton Island DXpedition. A DXer, a  contester  and
a DXpeditioner, over the years he participated in several major  operations,
such as XF4L (1989), 3Y0PI (1994), XR0Y & XR0Z  (Easter  Island  &  Salas  y
Gomez 1995), XZ0A (2000), 9M0M (Spratly Islands 2001),  S07L  (2002),  TZ6RD
(2003) and 9N7MD (2011). He was also involved in several  IOTA  activations,
notably from three Mexican "new ones" back in 1993. An  on-line  condolences
book,  set  up  by  the   Radio    Club    Satelite,    can    be  found  at
Other recently reported Silent Keys include Petras  Mikalajunas  (LY1PM,  ex
UP2BBB), Vladimir E. Sviridov (UA6AGK), Aleksandr P.  Denisov  (UR5FEL)  and
Jayant Bharamgonda Patil (VU2JBP, ex VU2JCX).
