Silent Key W5PKE

Mr. Curtis Edward Swafford, born on July 24, 1941 in Riceville, Tennessee, passed away at age 77 on September 17, 2018 in San Antonio, Texas. He graduated from Calhoun High School and TN Wesleyan College. Curtis served in the Air Force and he devoted his career to working at Randolph Air Force Base - Civil Service. Curtis is survived by his son, Mark Morga and wife Tara Morga; daughter, Christine Garza and husband Mark Garza; sister, Faye Burger and husband Carey Burger; and grandchildren, AnneMarie Garza, Stephanie Garza, Karina Morga, and Gabriela Morga. Some of Curtis' hobbies were ham radio - w5pke and bowling league.

Normally that would be the end of his story, but his family graciously allowed members of SARC to attend an estate sale of his treasure trove of years of collecting amateur radio equipment. Apparently, Curtis was into a lot more hobbies than just ham radio and bowling. He was into graphics art and computers from what we could see.

His memory will live on as other club members use his equipment to talk around the world. By the huge stack of QCL cards sitting by his desk, he made many contacts around the world. (A QSL card is a written confirmation of either a two-way radio communication between two amateur radio stations)

Curtis is gone but not forgotten by members of San Antonio Radio Club. While many of us did not know him while he was alive, we bonded with him through purchasing his equipment. His legacy will live on though many SARC members using his equipment once more to talk around the world.

I was thinking that there was a few more items that I left and wondering if
they were going to open again.

I’ll help if I can pick some stuff for me- not ham stuff but other items.

Subject: [W5SC] Ham Estate sale- June 29th



I have made a request to purchase what has been left over from the sale.
Have not heard back from them yet, but I might hear back from them tomorrow,
July the 1st.



They have to be out of the house by Wednesday the 3rd. Time was not set
up very well, but when is it ever!



The Silent Key was very active in 2 meters I believe. Lloyd mentioned that
it might be an opportunity for the club to make some extra money for this
coming up Radio Fiesta. I guess what I am asking is would anyone be willing
to help load up what is left to move it to the storage facility so that we
would be killing as many stones as possible, helping a SK and possibly
making some extra money for the club. I myself have my eyes on some of the
test equipment and maybe a few other items.



On a side note Rosendo said it’s kind of like Field Day, all work and no
play! I also made a few contacts with some of the “Bad Guys” on the south
side. They would be willing to take on the task of working us over aka
beating the stuffing out of us, but there were a few concerns: A; How many
of us would there be? B; Where would this be done? C; Would other clubs
be interested? D; Cash up front, of course. There was a concern that
since there are so many Field Day activities here in San Antonio that they
suggested that they outsource this to someone out of this area so an extra
fuel charge would be added. Of course we would be getting a group rate to
help offset the added fuel charge. Any thoughts on this?



Back to the silent key, any help on this?

Agree.  I bought several pieces of Heathkit gear and a pile of books.  Need to make sure the house buyer doesn't trash dump the contents.

Made it, thanks for pics. Looks like a lot of club members made it. Joe Bruno & team were taking down tower when I go there.

4 sure he was a “collector” – I had to stop or I would be in same class. Picked up a few things. It’s a shame there is so much stuff to go through it would take a week. There is actually a small fortune in stuff there.
