Tom Silliman has been named a Fellow by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers for contributions to the improvement of antenna and filter technology for radio and television broadcasting.

Like his father, the late Robert Silliman, Tom Silliman has been honored both as an IEEE Fellow and recipient of the NAB Radio Engineering Achievement Award. He received the latter this spring.

Silliman is president/CEO of Electronics Research Inc., manufacturer of antennas and related broadcast equipment. IEEE President Lewis Terman notified Silliman of the honor recently.

Nominations are being accepted for the IEEE Fellows class of 2010; the deadline for nominations is March 1, 2009. The IEEE board last year named 295 senior members to Fellow Grade.

Silliman: On Top, Still Climbing

CHANDLER, Ind. Lots of people can say they’ve been to the top of the Empire State Building, but not many have been where Tom Silliman has been, clinging to a metal framework and looking down at the art-deco peak, once intended as a dirigible mooring mast, that now anchors a cluster of FM and TV antennas for New York City.
