I know this is the WRONG FORUM,

But there are several messages on the cluster
stating that Steve ZC4LI passed away on Saturday 8-31-13.

Know any further info Huh

I worked Steve a bunch of times in different contests.
He was the only OP I ever found from UK Base on Cyprus.

I was wondering about his health.
Havent heard him in a few months.
He was most always active in the RTTY contests.

RIP Steve, I'll miss your call in the slugfests.

Steve's passing was reported in today's Daily DX.
He passed away 31 August as a result of cancer.
Steve was a great operator, and I worked him many times on different bands. Confirmed quickly via LotW too.
I don't think that leaves any active ZC4 operators. He will be missed.

I worked Steve every RTTY contest, also see in my log I had worked him on SSB and CW. Steve will be sadly missed on the bands.

R.I.P. Steve

Thank You for all the QSO's over the years...

Condolences to Steve's family and friends....

RIP Steve.  He gave me (and perhaps many others) an ATNO.

There are a huge number of hams who got an ATNO from Steve.  And he was a great operator and a great QSLer.  Rest in peace, ZC4LI.

I hear you. Of my 18 QSOs with ZC4, only 4 of them were with stations other than Steve, and they were all in 2002, 2003 and one in 2009. I'm glad I have this entity on 8 bands/3 modes because it's about to become a whole lot rarer, unfortunately, just like Norfolk Island did after Jim (VK9NS) became an SK a few years ago and likewise Father Moran in Nepal.

Steve was indeed a prolific operator, especially in CW and RTTY contests.  In checking the log here, our last QSO was as recent as 4 July of this year.  Peter is correct: ZC4 will almost certainly become a rarer entity on the bands.  Condolences to his family and friends.  RIP, OM . .

I've worked him a few times and definitely was an ATNO for me. Very sad to hear, RIP
