+ SILENT KEY  + Ingolf Schuster, DL4JS died on 28 March "due to  a  terrible
accident" during the T2YY DXpedition to Tuvalu.  An  RTTY  specialist,  over
the years he participated in  several  operations  -  5K0Z,  XU7AJS,  5T5DC,
6V7M, TO8YY, 9H9OB, XV4YY and HU2DX to  name  a  few.  The  other  two  team
