It’s hard to believe that 4 years has passed since the ham radio world lost one of its DX Giants. On January 6, 2018 David K3LP was tragically taken from us. A legend gone but not forgotten.

JANUARY 6, 2018 — Very sad news recently received. David Collingham, K3LP, is Silent Key.

David had been on over 70 DXpeditions, visited over 100 different DXCC entities, operating from 62 of them. He was a leader or co-leader on over 14 major DXpeditions. He was inducted as a member of the CQDX Hall of Fame in 2014. In addition, he activated Most Wanted DXCC Entities; 8 of the Top 10 and 16 of the Top 50. Over the last twenty years, he had supported numerous youth education and development projects, and youth sports.

May he R.I.P – thoughts to his wife Rebecca & family.
