KE7X, Fred Cady, silent key

T Gahagan-2
I am very saddened to report the death  of my long time friend Frederick Cady, KE7X.  Many of you know Fred from his series of excellent manuals written for Elecraft products.  Fred passed away yesterday evening from heart failure.   He is survived by this wife Katie and daughter Elizabeth.

That is sad news.  Fred did a wonderful job on the KX line books.  I still
refer to them regularly.
RIP

Very sorry to hear!  Years ago when I purchased my first Elecraft product, an early KX3, Fred’s companion book totally demystified it for me and it continues to be a valuable resource to this day.  Thank you Fred.

In reply to this post by T Gahagan-2
I hate to hear this.  He was a great asset to the hobby, and a nice
man.  I never met him in person, but when I was BRAND NEW to
Elecrafting, Fred took the time to answer all my questions... good and
bad and I'm sure frustrating.  He never missed a beat or showed any
hesitancy to help.  He even chatted with me on the phone once for a long
time to make sure I had things straight.

He will be greatly missed.  I will be praying for his family. :-(

Very sorry to hear that.  Fred would have loved the new upcoming K4 and writing about it.  His books on the Elecraft rigs will surely be missed on future products.

Re: KE7X, Fred Cady, silent key

This just makes Fred's books that much more valuable. Now they're something
to remember him by, his legacy. As I usually do in such sad times, I will
remember Fred fondly, and read for him the Heart Sutra's culmination...

Gaté, gaté, paragaté, parasamgaté.
Bodhi!
Svaha!

(which means...)
Gone, gone, gone over, gone fully over.
Awakened!
So be it!

Fred, you will be missed.

Gwen, NG3P

We all will miss Fred.  My condolences to his family and friends.  I had
the pleasure of reviewing the draft of his first K3 manual.

I never had the pleasure of meeting him face to face, but we had many
email exchanges.

I have a signed copy of his K3S and P3 manual that was a gift from Fred,
and I will treasure it now more than ever before.

73,
