+ SILENT KEY + It was  with the greatest sadness that we  have learnt of  the
sudden passing of Mary Lou  Brown, NM7N. She  was on her  way home after  her
participation in the Lord  Howe (VK9LX) most  recent activities. Nick  Hacko,
VK2ICV says "Mary Lou gets a lot of credit for  helping the rest of us get  a
great lot of enjoyment out of  our trip. She was  undoubtedly the most  liked
person on the DXpedition".
