this is indeed very sad ... last time I was in touch with John was about 1
year ago when he posted a request for contributions for the Sounds from
Space collection in Radcom.

Also at that time he even extracted himself some old recordings from his old
files and sent them to me.

He was very kind and we certainly will miss him.

Dear John, rest in peace.

Betreff: [amsat-bb] John Heath G7HIA, SK

this is very hard to write, but his family has just told me that my good
friend John Heath, G7HIA succumbed to cancer and passed away last night.
They asked me to tell his amateur radio friends here and I know that
amsat-uk have also been told.
I'l leave it to others to complete his obituary, but I will always remember
his passion for satellites and the cosmos, his patience in explaining and
teaching others, his companionship and friendship, and our various contacts
particularly with Russia.
