LARC’s White Night

Last evening we were very fortunate to have Ellen White, W1YL, share her ham radio experiences from High School to the present with us. Ham radio has been an integral part of Ellen’s life, family and professional for many years.

During her presentation, Ellen passed around a memento from an era long ago when certain practices were more more acceptable. From its pristine condition, it is evident that this one has never been put into service. 🙂

Here Ellen poses with Daryl Davis KT4WX, West Central Florida Section Manager.

Above are the members of the Florida Contest Group, who attended our meeting to hear Ellen speak. This group was founded by K4OJ, Ellen’s son. Standing on the far left, proudly wearing the group’s colors, and no stranger to the members of LARC is our very own, Bob Foxworth, K2EUH.

And the winner is… Chet Carruth! Chet AB4XK is the lucky winner of the grand prize of a radio valued at $609 dollars.

Congratulations are in order. We have a new Tech, David McQueary KM4LPR, from Sun and Fun. Dave is shaking hands with his Elmer, Don Jeerings.
