Sadly, ARRL reports that Ben Stevenson, W2BXA, has passed away.  He  was 97 
and active on the air almost until the end.  See 
In addition to the many achievements listed in the article, Ben and I made  
the first-ever two-way contact by satellite-to-satellite relay in any radio 
 service, using AO-7 and AO-6 in 1975.
Ben was a good friend for nearly 40 years.  I'll miss him.
