Here’s to Albert Waters, of Los Lunas, who passed his Tech exam Jan 12, 2019. In addition, Kevin Welander, K5ZOO, of Bosque Farms, upgraded to a General-class license. And a belated congratulations to David Fouts, KC5ERO, of Albuquerque, who upgraded to General in December. All thanks to the Valencia County Amateur Radio Association’s W5YI testing team. A great way to send off the old year and bring in the new!
