Silent Key – W.W. (Bill) Slaughter (VE7CIM/VE7WS)

28 May

Hello fellow amateur radio operators. As you may or may not know W.W. (Bill) Slaughter (VE7CIM/VE7WS) of Burnaby Radio Communications Ltd had passed away May 18, 2013. Bill had opened the store for 20+ years ago to support the commercial and amateur radio community. Bill was 73 and had been fighting a medical ailment for some time. As many of you know I have been helping Bill part time for around 3 years with sales and repairs. The store will be open in June after the Sea-PAC Hamfest. Please be patient as this will be a huge undergoing for me. Burnaby Radio will be open on June 8-9, 2013 for fellow hams to pay their last respects and tell stories on how Bill got them into radio (hihi). This will be a two day event as many out of town guys would like to come. Thanks Mike Wong VE7HMW
