Silent Key: Jerry Skoll KC9DTB

It is with great sadness that we pass along the word that Jerry Skoll, KC9DTB became a Silent Key on Feb 13, 2016, losing his battle with cancer.

Jerry was past President of the Indianapolis Radio Club, having served in that position in 2011 and 2012.

One of Jerry's favorite things to do was to captain boats to far away places for those who owned them but did not want to sail them that far distance. He would always get on HF and look to talk to us locals from those boats.

Jerry was associated with the USS Indianapolis Radio Group, helping to install the equipment there.

Jerry [SK] will be missed.
