IN SEARCH FOR THE AMATEUR RADIO NEWSLINE YOUNG HAM OF THE YEAR 2017 The 2017 Bill Pasternak Young Ham of the Year nominations will be accepted between March 1, 2017 and May 31, 2017. The award presentation will be held at the Huntsville Hamfest on August 19, 2017. Just as Bill WA6ITF/SK helped create Newsline for hams of the present, he believed in nurturing hams of the future. We carry on that mission this year by inviting listeners to look around them at the promising young operators they know who are making a difference in their communities and making contributions to advance radio science. Nominees must be 18 or younger and be a resident of the United States, its possessions or any Canadian province. Application forms are available on our website https://www.arnewsline.org/yhoty Please read the rules carefully. Applications are being accepted between Wednesday, March 1 and May 31. The award will be presented on August 19th at the Huntsville Hamfest in Huntsville Alabama. In the weeks ahead, you'll hear some of our past winners speaking on Newsline, explaining the award's impact on their life. For now, look around you, find that deserving young ham and make that nomination.
