A Voice of WWV Goes Silent, Off The Air

I was very saddened to learn recently that Don Elliot Heald–the voice of the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) radio station, WWV–passed away Feb 19th, 2009. My earliest memories of listening to shortwave radio included hearing his voice read the time on WWV’s frequencies (2.5, 5, 10, 15 and 20 MHz) in the 1970s.

Heald was also heavily involved in broadcasting and charitable organizations. You can read his full obituary here.
