SILENT KEY – Tom GM3ZLC (Copied off WoSARS Members Forum – GM4COX)

I’ve just been informed by Keith GM4DAE (Keith had been looking after Tom’s ‘affairs’) of the sad news that a former member of the Club -Tom GM3ZLC passed away last night (10th June).

Tom had been suffering from a terminal condition over the last year or so. Unfortunately this has come to pass. In one way it’s a blessing as Tom was no longer the Tom that I (and Sam GM4BGS) remember.

I first met Tom in 1969 as keen SWL (as was Tom at the time – however, he had just passed his City & Guilds Radio Amateurs Exam and awaiting his new callsign) . It was my first visit to the then Radio Club of Scotland (RCS). Standing outside the then Clubrooms (North Woodside Road); a grey Vauxhall Viva pulled up with Tom driving. Asked if I was waiting for the Club Rooms to open, he invited to wait inside the car.

Tom’s main interest was HF CW, with the odd excursion onto 2M with his trusty FT-221R.

In latter years he became involved with the Mid Lanark ARS through Dennis MM0DNX (SK). They both lived in Garrowhill and as Dennis’s mobility deteriorated Tom ‘chauffeured’ him to and from the Club.
