Hello AMSATs,

I just wanted to write some message on AMSAT-BB, and then I read the sad message about silent key of Robert VU2MKP.

It is a great lost for the HAM world. I made several contacts with Robert via the old bird AO-10, which was a great joy.
Later when I was in Bangalore, India, I got the chance to meet him in person.
I was very amazed to see how he uses his radios, and laptop computer with a small stick in his mouth. He did have lots of positive energy, even when he lost lots of his body functions. A great man and ham with real ham spirit.

My condolences to his family,
May his soul rest in peace,

William Leijenaar PE1RAH
