Washington, DC - Sep 21, 2001 - Steve Linn, deputy chief of the Licensing and Technical Analysis Branch for private wireless within the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau of the Federal Communications Commission, and his wife Lesley Nearman were killed in an automobile accident on September 21 in Maryland. The couple’s two children were also in the vehicle but were not seriously injured. Linn was scheduled to speak at the Virginia Beach Hamfest that weekend and was traveling there when the accident occurred. Services were held September 24.

Linn worked in the FCC’s Gettysburg office. He had worked closely with many members of the broadcast engineering community over the years. Recently, he had worked closely with the Society of Broadcast Engineers on frequency coordination matters and offered invaluable guidance on many issues with a friendly and professional manner. At SBE’s invitation, Linn attended the last two spring NAB Conventions so he could participate in SBE frequency coordination meetings.
