I was very saddened to learn of the passing away of Robin Haighton (  
I had the great pleasure of meeting Robin in the year 2001 during a  visit 
to the UK for the Amsat Colloquium, 
He had relatives over here as his wife had lived in the village of  Rhoose, 
Vale of Glamorgan, South Wales - Not to far away from my own QTH.
Along with some other colleagues we great pleasure in talking to him and  
one of the subjects was ARISS School Contacts
When Robin returned home he very kindly (at his own expense ) sent me  a CD 
containing a video recording
of the ISS link up with "KC0PCH "  ( Parkway Central  high School  ).
I was able to show this to many other interested parties and youngsters and 
 it really pioneered the way forward for our hobby.
My most of those in the video have matured and grown up - I am sure many  
will still remember the experience.
Many thanks Robin - a very nice and respected person.  - RIP.
My thoughts are with family and friends.
