Bruce Junkin KI7JA - Lifetime Achievement Award

Bruce significantly advanced the art of VHF/UHF amateur radio communications with his VHF contest acitivity, his on-the-air efforts and enthusiasm, his EME activity, and his advanced antenna design and construction. He was one of the few 1296 Mhz weak signal operators in Oregon, and the only 903 Mhz activity from that state. Bruce often traveled to remote sites and endured extreme conditions to provide others with a new grid square and contact on several bands. Bruce assisted with the PNW VHF Society activites by setting up and managing several luncheon get-togethers of society members and other amateur operators.
