On May 28, the radio broadcast engineering community lost a leader and many of us lost a dear friend.

Steve Schott of Continental and a 40-year veteran of the industry passed away. He was 65.

Those who knew Steve know of his calm manner, total integrity and utmost competence. He served the companies for which he worked and their customers with complete dedication.

Who among us have not used his collection of "Technical Programs," which he provided free for 25 years? More personally, there are those of us who think of Steve as a brother. We were brought together in the late '70s at Collins Radio, and while we have changed company associations over the years, have remained close and dear friends.

For that 30-year friendship, we will always be grateful. Today, there is emptiness; and while Steve is out of our embrace, he will always remain in our hearts.
