An ocean away, Monk Apollo, SV2ASP, became a Silent Key in early May. Monk Apollo brought amateur radio to the monastery at Mount Athos – a separate DX entity from Greece – in the early 1990s and was active as a DXer. According to the ARRL Letter, one other monk at Mount Athos is also licensed and active on the air. Monk Apollo passed away from complications of cancer at age 64.
