Bruce Junkin KI7JA (SK) — KB6KQ 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.
Louie Stober WA7GCS — 2014 VHFer of the Year
For advancing the art of VHF contesting and DX activity in the Pacific Northwest. Lou's active participation in the NW 2-meter Weak Signal Nets as well as his 50 Mhz DX success have once again proved that optimized antennas along with enthusiasm and effort will make the difference.

For contacting all 18 grid squares in Washington state from his home in Spokane.
