Awards

Jerry K0JJ — 2015 VHFer of the Year

Jerry Johnson K0JJ, 2015 VHFer of the Year

For his long-time participation and net control service on the Tuesday night VHF net on 144.240 from his Scappoose, Oregon location. He runs the Tuesday net and this encourages wide-ranging participation from all over the Pacific Northwest. He leads by example and is active on all bands. This is how we 'light the fire' in new VHF members and help existing members refine their equipment and techniques.
