I note here the recent passing of Rick Levy, a friend to the broadcast
engineering community in New England.


Rick was the head of Broadcast Signal Lab in Cambridge, and so much more... 


When I moved from NJ to Worcester almost 15 years ago, Rick welcomed me into
the local radio engineering community, and I will forever be grateful for


Among many other services to our community, he organized a quarterly
networking get-together for engineers in the region that may well be unique
in the country. No formal organization, just "bring yourself and anybody
else who's interested." Here's a portion of his invitation to the last

"The next quarterly Radio Engineers' luncheon is booked for Thursday the
16th of August. You and your technically-oriented associates are cordially
invited to attend this informal get-together. Newcomers are always welcome."

Rick was in the hospital for this meeting. He passed two days later.


I will miss Rick greatly, as I know my fellow broadcast engineers will.
