ARLX006 Judson F. ''Jud'' Whatley, W4NZJ, SK

Jud Whatley, W4NZJ, of Snellville, Georgia, died July 28. He was 53.
Licensed since 1958, Whatley was an ARRL member and a very active
amateur in the Georgia section. He served as an ARRL Affiliated Club
Coordinator and often spoke at various club gatherings.

Georgia Section Manager Sandy Donahue, W4RU, said Whatley will be
sorely missed and hard to replace. ''Jud was a backbone of my
cabinet.  I will miss him greatly,'' Donahue said. ''He fought
tirelessly and successfully the attempt of Gwinnett County to impose
severe tower restrictions on the cellular industry without exempting
ham towers.'' Whatley was past president of Chapter 49, Peach State
chapter of QCWA and a candidate for the QCWA Board of Directors at
the time of his death. He was a active member of his local club, the
Gwinnett Amateur Radio Society (GARS), the largest club in Georgia,
and involved in SciTrek, a local science museum for children and
youth. He's also credited with starting the Southeastern 6-meter
Net.

Services will be August 2, 11:30 AM, at Wages Funeral Home, Hwy 78,
Snellville, Georgia. Interment will be at 2 PM at the VA National
Cemetery in Marietta, Georgia.
