ARRL Awards:

We should have many of our fellow North Texas ARRL members getting nominated for awards that are provided by the League each and every year, details may be found on the ARRL website with a simple search string "Nominations Solicited for 6 ARRL Awards." It would be great if club's in our section would each form a nomination committee to get select amateurs from their club or community nominated for these awards. I know folks this kind of stuff takes time, but if we don't nominate someone, none of us will get recognition that we all deserve. Pay it forward, one day you may get an award. As of today, I have forwarded two nominations for awards to our Division Director.

Mentor Fest

Mentor Fest this year will be held on the third Saturday of April, April 18th. This is an all-day event that you should plan on attending. If you’re a Mentor and you do presentations, I really would like to have a conversation with you Now!!!  Telephone 318-470-9806  Email KG5VK@....
