Nah. He’s missing January. THAT was an April issue!,
License class is easy enough to ascertain. Do your own homework.
On the air activity is more difficult to determine.
I wish they could clone him. He was an active ham and in touch with the ham community. One of us. Didn't hide from emails, etc.
Some might be critical of that because he is now considered an old school Boomer and maybe not so in touch with the Winlink/digital crowd. You can criticise that ...or not. It depends.
Yeah, for me I'd like to see someone who is active with any of these areas; open source software, makerspace community, education.
If I don't see ties to any of those areas when I research their name, thumbs down from me.
I don't think I have enough ham radio experience to satisfy the QRZ crowd for CEO, as I've been too busy growing roses. But I've worked at least nine current Division Directors. I wonder if anyone can top that?
I have worked one of them a couple of times, that’s neither here nor there. I would be happy with a CEO who would just even casually operate...not looking for a avid DXer or contester, just someone that actually uses a radio every once and a while. Is that too much to ask for if you are going to be the Chief Executive Officer of a radio club/organization?
Two meter FM doesn't count...
Most of the Directors hold Extra class licenses. Only two hold General - Matt Holden, K0BBC (Director, Dakota Division) and John Robert Stratton, N5AUS (Director, West Gulf Division).
All of the Vice-Directors are Extras except for Ed Hudgens, WB4RHQ (Vice-Director, Delta Division) and Robert Wareham, N0ESQ (Vice-Director, Rocky Mountain Division) who are both Generals.
Considering your experience, your knowledge of the League, your familiarity with the Board... and your experience growing roses, which tells me you’re not afraid to get your hands dirty, and you’re used to working with manure...
You’re perfect for the job.
But I’m not sure I’d wish this on you. I have too much respect for you!
