HI Folks,


  It is with a heavy heart that I have to report the death of AMSAT-UK
committee member John Heaton, G1YYH. He died in hospital in Manchester UK on
Christmas Eve, having been admitted two weeks earlier. He had not been well
for several months prior to his death.


  John was the AMSAT-UK Webmaster for many years, and a regular attender at
the annual AMSAT-UK Colloquium. He always gave his time and considerable
expertise very generously. He will be terribly missed by his friends and


  He was a real gentleman.


  There is more information about John on his personal web site at
