Steve Affens (K3SA)

November 28, 2000

Burt Cohen, W3GG, regretfully reports that Steve Affens, K3SA (ex K3ZAW), died of a heart attack yesterday. Steve, 52 years old, and his XYL Patti, N3HOT, were celebrating their 30th anniversary in the Cayman Islands. During the CQ World Wide CW DX Contest Steve was QRV as ZF2SA. Professional Steve was a cameraman for the local TV (WJLA) station in Washington, DC. He was awarded the Whitehouse Photographers Association Award Camera Man of the year five times. Steve was a member of the Potomac Valley Radio Club and the Webmaster for the clubs website from its inception. On a personal note I have know Steve for many years. He was an active DXer and Contester. Steve graciously helped me with the creation of The Daily DX website during its infancy. Steve leaves behind his wife Patti and their son Scott, KA3TUE.

I worked with Steve while employed by WJLA (ex-WMAL) in the late 60's. We used to go out and enjoy the night life together after work. I'm very sorry to hear of his passing.
