George Pataki

Hello Dave,

I just read in the August 2014 edition of QST magazine that George Pataki WB2AQC passed away.  He worked as a technician in Audio Maintenance and at the WCBS-TV transmitter.  I don't have any more information other than the listing in the QST Magazine "silent key" column.  George was an avid Ham Radio Operator who emigrated from Romania years ago and started work with CBS-TV.  He attained DXCC Honor Roll #1 after working all the countries of the World.

As an aside, George worked with Steve Mendelsohn in radio, where they were known as "George of the Jungle" and "Super Chicken" from a, then current, TV cartoon show.
