Five CQ "Family" Members Honored by YASME Foundation

Two contributing editors for CQ Communications magazines and three members of the CQ World Wide DX Contest Committee have been named as recipients of the 2012 YASME Excellence Awards.

CQ Propagation Editor Tomas Hood, NW7US, and WorldRadio Online Propagation Editor Carl Luetzelschwab, K9LA, were both honored for "their sustained education of the amateur community regarding propagation, solar and geomagnetic physics."

CQWWCC members George Fremin, K5TR, "Tree" Tyree, N6TR, and Trey Garlough, N5KO, were recognized, along with Scott Neader, KA9FOX, "for their contributions to many infrastructure projects that benefit the ham community at large."

They are among a total of 16 amateurs recognized by the YASME Foundation with cash grants and engraved crystal globes. The YASME Foundation helps to fund and support scientific and educational projects related to amateur radio, including DXing and the introduction and promotion of amateur radio in developing countries.
