W2BXA, Benjamin H. Stevenson, of Colonia, New Jersey passed away early
yesterday afternoon.  He was 97.  Stevenson was a DX legend who once
was at the very top of the ARRL DXCC tied with DX greats W2AGW and
K6ZO.  His numbers in the DXCC standings are 332/390 (active/total).
First licensed as W2BXA on November 19, 1929 at the age of 15, he was
already a DXer enjoying the BC bands listening to KPO, KNX, KFI and
other California stations.  After being licensed for less than a year
he worked his first DX station in Belgium.  Afterwards the 16 year old
was so excited he was unable to eat his dinner.  He went on to work
every DXCC Entity except the deleted CR8 - Damao Diu.  FI8AC and three
or four other stations in French Indo China were worked however he was
never able to confirm this past DXCC entity.  Ben had many DXCC
accomplishments including obtaining the first CQ WAZ in 1947 and the
first Satellite DXCC in 1978.  He was a Charter member and the first
President of the North Jersey DX Association (NJDXA).

A51KC, Kesang Namgyel, of Bhutan recently unexpectedly passed away.
He was in the first class of licensed hams taught by W0GJ/A52GJ, Glenn
Johnson, in Bhutan in 2000.  Kesang "was one of the most enthusiastic
gentlemen I've ever known", remembers Glenn.  A51KC had a tour and
trekking company.
