Silent key: G0FCL

With a heavy heart.

It is with much sadness that Amsat-UK announce the passing of Dennis 
Kitchen, G0FCL, who died on Thursday 30 August, following a short illness.

An active member of AMSAT-UK for many years, and committee member in charge 
of the UK's Orbital Calendar since 1991, Dennis also co-ordinated 
AMSAT-UK's goods and services in recent years, only handing over the reins 
at the Bletchley (UK) Rally this spring, and only standing down from the 
committee in July 2001 due to his ill health.  He also wrote the 
satellite column in the RSGB publication "Radio Communication". Dennis will 
be warmly remembered for his passion for amateur radio and satellites, and 
his willingness to share his knowledge and experience with all. 

His passing will leave a void in our lives but we take comfort in the 
thought that he did not suffer. One of life's *gentlemen* has left us.

Amsat-UK have sent condolences to his wife Barbara and his two sons. 
Funeral details will be placed on amsat-bb once known. 
73's, OM, you were the best. [G7RWY]
