ARLX004 Nick Marshall, W6OLO, SK

Nick Marshall, W6OLO, a pioneer in the amateur satellite world and
one of the founders of Project OSCAR 35 years ago has died.  He was
81.  At the time of his death, Marshall was serving as the president
of Project Oscar.  Services were held January 28 in Sebastapol,
California, where Nick lived.

AMSAT President Bill Tynan, W3XO, who had known Nick for almost 30
years, called him an inspiration to early AMSAT enthusiasts.  Bill
added that if Nick's dream of an Amateur Radio transponder on the
Moon could ever be realized, it should carry the call sign W6OLO.
