ARLX002 Helge Granberg, K7ES, SK

Helge O. Granberg, K7ES/OH2ZE, a Finnish-American amateur and ARRL
Technical Advisor for many years, passed away at his home in
Phoenix, Arizona, January 16.  He was 63.  Helge was a long-time
employee of Motorola Inc. in Phoenix and owned his own consulting
business.  Helge wrote many technical articles on RF subjects for
amateur and industrial radio publications worldwide.  While living
in his native Finland, he was one of the earliest pioneers in SSB
technology.

He also was an accomplished inventor and is well-known for the
''Granberg Transistor,'' on which he holds one of his many patents.
Helge's wife, Tuula, a son and a daughter survive.  A memorial
service is set for January 26 in Phoenix.  His wife plans to return
Helge's ashes to Finland for burial.
