Well-known DXer and DX Steve Hodgson, ZC4LI, SK


A familiar DX and contesting call sign has gone quiet. Steve Hodgson, ZC4LI, of Cyprus died August 31 of cancer. He was 69. Hodgson also was on the air over the years as 5B4AHA, C4C, GØLII, G6G and ZD8LII, and was active until a few weeks ago. Adrian, 5B4AIY, called him “an enthusiastic contest operator [who] had won many awards. I’m sure his call will be sorely missed.” Mark, N2QT, said ZC4LI was a familiar call sign to any RTTY contester. Hodgson will be buried in the Military Cemetery in Cyprus.
