Silent Key Submission Guidelines

Reporting a Silent Key

QST Submission GuidelinesSK_QST_Logo_NoText.png

QST Magazine regularly features a listing of Silent Keys as a way to honor our departed Radio Amateurs. Silent Key notifications are accepted from family members, friends or other amateurs.

The ARRL would like to express our deepest condolences for your loss. We understand that this is a difficult time and hope to make reporting a Silent Key a simple process. Due to editorial guidelines and printing timelines, please allow 4-5 months for the listing to appear in the QST Silent Key column.


<>  If you choose to email, fax, or mail the information to us, please use the printer friendly Report a Silent Key PDF form.

Silent Key reports must be confirmed by ONE of the following means:
     ·   a copy of an obituary notice (must include date of death)
     ·   a copy of the death certificate
     ·   a letter from the family lawyer or the executor

If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact the Silent Key Administrator: or 860-594-0286.
