In Memoriam
William A. Sprague, Sr.
1925-2010


We wish to express our appreciation for Bill’s dedication to
“ham radio,” largely expressed through the amateur radio
club he founded on the Eastern Shore more than three
decades ago. Through his dedication and leadership, he inspired
many to become hams and brought together these and
many other hams for the purposes of advancing the hobby;
providing communications assistance for a variety of annual
events; and assisting with emergency communication needs
of Northampton and Accomack Counties when needed. Although
now a “silent key,” his legacy shall live on since he donated
his radio call, K4BW, to the club, in perpetuity.
Thank you, Bill, and “73.”
