Sorry to hear about George's passing. If you have info about George’s time with DOC or DOT, I would appreciate receiving it.

Hi Donald:

 

Date stamps will be hard to determine/remember as I worked with George up until he retired; and I am thinking that would have been back in the late 70s.  He was one of the ones that transitioned as DoT split to become DoT and DoC.  He worked in the IRLS  - Radio Licensing Section and his boss was Al Heavenor.  Sorry, I don’t have too much more than that.  He was a technologist and did frequency assignments.  I will see if anyone has anything more specific, but that was many moons ago.
