 Nominations Open for RCA “Young Ham Lends a Hand” Award

Young amateurs who are especially generous in giving time to help an older person, a veteran, or the community at large, or active in recruiting other young people to get their ham licenses, may be candidates for the Radio Club of America’s annual “Young Ham Lends a Hand” award. Winners will be presented with their awards, as well as a $100 stipend, at the Dayton Hamvention® Youth Forum in May. Nominations are open until April first and should be e-mailed to Carole Perry, WB2MGP, at <>. Nominations should include the nominee’s name, call, age, contact info and reasons for the nomination.

RCA has also just released a free training module, “Introduction to Wireless,” which provides basic information on the wireless industry, including types of available jobs, education needed for those jobs and resources for finding openings. The module is presented as a PowerPoint™ deck. The package may be downloaded from the RCA website at <>, and then clicking on “Introduction to Wireless” on the red bar.
