At its January meeting, Orlando Amateur Radio Club (OARC) President John Knott, N4JTK, presented ARRL Southeastern Division Director Doug Rehman, K4AC, with a check for $2500, designated for the ARRL Spectrum Defense Fund. OARC sponsors the Orlando HamCation, which will host the 2016 ARRL National Convention February 12-14 in Orlando, Florida.
“ARRL is very pleased to start 2016 with such a wonderful gift to the Spectrum Defense Fund, and we deeply appreciate OARC’s generosity and commitment to helping ARRL in our advocacy efforts,” said ARRL Development Manager Lauren Clarke, KB1YDD. “ARRL is very fortunate to have so many dedicated clubs that support this important work. As we prepare for HamCation and the 2016 ARRL National Convention, I look forward to the opportunity to thank all of OARC’s members in person.”
