Steve sadly passed away in his sleep on December 30th. He had been battling cancer for some time and kept a diary of his battle on his website at www.karinya.net. Steve will be remembered for his vast knowledge of antennas, in particularly his work on the Hexbeam and his resulting broadband variant that has been used by many amateurs all over the world to great success. He was always willing to give his time to impart his knowledge to any who asked. 73 OM RIP.
