Silent Key, Jack Kelleher W4ZC

It is with sadness that I note the passing of Jack Kelleher, W4ZC of Olney
MD. Many of us remember Jack from his NASA era in the late 1960's when he
was one of the originators of several communications satellites, including
the ATS series. He was one of the early supporters in the establishment of
AMSAT in the DC area.

Jack was 87 when he passed away and had been an amateur since 1932 when he
was a lad in high school in Red Bank NJ. His career included a stint in the
Army in WW2 and later as a civilian in the Dept of Army Signals Office.

Jack was an old friend an he will be missed.

73 de Tom, W3IWI
