ARRL North Texas Amateur of the Year
We received three nominations for the ARRL North Texas Amateur of the Year. The voting committee will have their votes to me by the first of next month.
I continue to encourage ARRL North Texas members and their clubs to be prepared to nominate members for the many awards available from the ARRL.
Do not overlook the many college scholarships that are available to Amateur radio ops that will be attending college next year.
While we are now embracing cooler temps in the morning hours, summer is not yet gone. If working outside please remember to take breaks from the heat and stay hydrated.
