Director Frank Butler, W4RH, is the recipient of the Birmingham (Alabama) Amateur Radio Club’s 2015 Citizenship Award, the club’s highest honor. The award recognizes outstanding service, unselfish devotion, and contributions to the club, the community, and Amateur Radio.

The recipient is selected by the club’s president and the two past award recipients. Butler, of Fort Walton Beach, Florida, retired in 2008 after 50 years of elected service to the ARRL. He served as Southeastern Division Director from 1980 until 2008. Before joining the ARRL Board, Butler served briefly as the Division’s Vice Director, and he was a Section Communications Manager in Florida from 1957 until 1979.

He was honored at the 2015 BirmingHAMfest.

2015 Outstanding Youth Ham Award

 

KV4LQ - Danial Smith 2014 "Youth Ham of the Year"

KV4LQ – Danial Smith 2014 “Youth Ham of the Year”

The 2015 Alabama Section Outstanding Youth Ham Award is intended to recognize a youth ham, under the age of 18, who has demonstrated his or her dedication to Amateur Radio through his or her activities.  Although there are several national awards of similar merit, we recognized the need for an award that

honors outstanding young hams on the local level.  Thus, the ARRL Alabama Section Outstanding Youth Ham Award was born.  This award is not a contest for a prize.  Any prizes given are secondary in nature.  A person selected “Alabama Outstanding Youth Ham”; is judged on his or her contributions to society through Amateur Radio.

Requirements

Nominees for the Alabama Section Outstanding Youth Ham Award must meet the following requirements to be considered for this award:

A current Alabama resident

  • A licensed Amateur Radio operator
  • 18 years of age or younger
