I’m truly saddened to hear about the passing of Spud Roscoe VE1BC, a renowned maritime radio historian and long-time amateur radio operator. Spud’s contributions to the field of maritime radio and his dedication to preserving its history were truly commendable. His expertise and passion made him a valuable member of the amateur radio community.
It’s evident from his extensive involvement in organizations such as the Halifax Amateur Radio Club and his impressive radio career that Spud was a respected figure in the world of radio communication. His website, http://ve1bc.com, likely stands as a testament to his commitment to sharing his knowledge and experiences with others.
Spud’s passing is a loss not only to his family and friends but also to the wider community of amateur radio enthusiasts who benefited from his expertise and contributions. May his legacy continue to inspire those who share his love for radio communication, and may he rest in peace as a “silent key.”
