The New Zealand Association of Radio Transmitters (NZART) reports
that its former contest and awards manager Jock White, ZL2GX, died
May 17, 1997. He was an NZART life member. In 1948, White became one
of the first ZLs to attain DXCC. In June 1960, he became the first
amateur to receive the DXCC 300 award and was on the honor roll in
the late 50s and early 60s. In 1959, White was among the group of
three hams that QST jointly designated as top DXers.

The former chairman of AMSAT-UK, A C ''Doc'' Gee, of Oulton Broad,
Suffolk, died May 19, 1997. He was 84. Licensed in 1935, Dr Gee was
a charter member of AMSAT UK and served as its chairman from 1979
until 1992. He wrote the satellite column in Radio Communications
for several years and was active on the satellites until a few weeks
before his death. He was a member of the Royal Naval Wireless
Auxiliary Reserve, which led to a life-long interest in Amateur
Radio, and a member of the London Wireless Club (now RSGB). His
wife, Marjory, and a son and daughter survive. A service will be
held May 29 in Oulton Broad.
