One of the great qualities of our ARRL New Mexico Section is that it is full of active League members who do great things that positively impact our amateur radio community. We’re also fortunate to have many ARRL-affiliated ham clubs across the Land of Enchantment that are teeming with activity and similarly benefit our community. All deserve our gratitude.
Recognize that member or club by nominating them for the New Mexico Section Ham of the Year award or the New Mexico Section Club of the Year award.
Nominations are being accepted right now, and are due no later than Sunday, July 30th. Recipients will be announced before the Section and awarded a plaque at the upcoming ARRL New Mexico State Convention (Albuquerque Duke City Hamfest, August 11-13).
Complete rules and online nomination forms for each award are available by clicking on the appropriate links in the “Awards” menu of this website.
We all know who the moving and shaking hams and clubs are within the New Mexico Section. Please take a moment to nominate them for recognition today.
This newsletter is intended to replace the monthly email-based Section news notes distributed through the League’s email system. With the new format that a newsletter brings, content can be expanded to include pictures and graphics.
Pertinent announcements will still be communicated to ARRL members via the League’s email system.
Thank you for being a valuable member of the League. Your feedback is always welcome.
