Kia ora from Aotearoa (73 from New Zealand). I’m Gary and I’m a radio amateur.
This is not me, but a favourite photo of my good pal
. He’s in his element in this snap,
fixing a homebrewed 40m vertical antenna to the
tin roof of a large shed at the contest club ZM4T.
I’m very sad to report that Lee died
this past weekend at a hospice in Hastings.
Lee loved DX and had amassed a tremendous
set of DX awards. One of the very last things
he told me was that he’d kept a small station
at home in case he was allowed out
of the hospice on day release.
Sadly that was not to be.
Lee’s legacy lives on though. We’ll always
remember that cheery smile, the skillful
way he managed his pileups, and
most of all, the friendship.
73 Lee. SK
