    All,

    It is my sad duty to report that Joe Batchelor passed away Sunday January
    4, 2004.

    Joe Batchelor was the lead engineer at Central Electronics, who's noted for
    the design and development of the broadband couplers used in the 600L HF
    amplifiers and the later 100V/200V broadband HF transmitters. In addition
    to his work at Central Electronics, Joe Batchelor is also listed in Who’s
    Who for his work in the development of a radio system designed to locate
    downed pilots at sea for the Air Force back in the mid-forties.

    Joe’s funeral was today in Monroe GA. News of his passing did not reach me
    until this morning, which left me little time to attend, let alone send out
    this email. Thus, the late notice. Nick Tusa and I were there to represent
    the Amateur Radio community and forward our condolences to Joe’s wife of
    over sixty years, W4EZS, Jackie.
