2019 West Texas Section Managers Award

Once again it is time for ARRL Field Day and once again, ARRL Affiliated
Clubs in the West Texas Section will be competing for the coveted West
Texas Section Manager’s Award. This will be the 17th year that
Affiliated Clubs have tested their emergency operating and traffic
handling skills in a friendly competition for the plaque that honors our
first West Texas ARRL Section Manager Gene Smith (SK). Gene (W5GSN/AE5I)
was known as “Mr. Traffic” for West Texas and it is fitting that we
honor those that excel in our annual emergency traffic event in his
name. The award will go to the highest scoring ARRL Affiliated West
Texas Section Club and will be presented at the Midland Hamfest in March

The 2019 West Texas Section Manager’s Award honoring Gene Smith is
sponsored by AE5B and K5RLA.  Gene was also past President of
Abilene’s Key City Amateur Radio Club.

I hope everyone has a great Field Day and makes lots of contacts!

ARRL West Texas Section
Section Manager: Harlon Dale Durham, W5WI
