Nominations for the 2016 Hudson Division Awards are now closed!

This year we’ve received a record number of nominations.  At the
close of the nominating period 25 nominations were received for the
following awards:

Technical Achievement, Grand Ole Ham, and Amateur of the Year.

This exceeds the amount of nominations received last year ad is, in
fact, the most nominations we’ve ever received!  We hope to announce
the awardees soon.

Radio Club (OCARC), will be held on Saturday, November 5, 2016  from 12
