Why Are Deceased Amateur Radio Operators Called “Silent Keys” ?

When sending Morse code, the pro-sign “SK” or di-di-di-dah-di-dah” is used to designate the last communication of the sending radio station’s transmissions with another station. When an amateur radio operator passes away, his station has sent its last transmission.
