AMSAT-UK invite authors to submit papers, about amateur radio space and
associated activities, for this event and for the "Proceedings" document
which will be published at the same time. We normally prefer authors to

in the authors' absence, but we also welcome "unpresented" papers for the
Abstracts of Papers should be submitted as soon as possible; the final date
for full documents is 15 June 1997 in order that the "Proceedings" document
be available to participants.
Submissions should be sent *ONLY* to G3RWL, via the following routes:

* G2UK - SILENT KEY *
On a sad note, Arthur C. Gee, G2UK, the former Chairman of AMSAT-UK, passed
away on 19-May-97 after being re-admitted to the hospital after complications
following a hip operation early in the month. He was 84.
"Doc" Gee, as he was referred to by many friends, was an AMSAT-UK member
from the formation of the Organization (membership number 0025). He became
AMSAT-UK's Chairman in 1979, and resigned from office in 1992 because of ill
health. He was a friend to many and will surely be missed. He was active on
the RS satellites up to three weeks prior to his death, and will be remembered
as the writer of the Satellite column in "Radio Communications" for several
Rest in Peace Arthur. A good friend and advisor to a vast number of people.
