I am very happy to announce that we now have our first candidate for President of BARS for the Wednesday, 11/4 election. Doug Bruce (“from the cookie sheet in Reading”) has stepped up to the plate. I met Doug last year at my Boston Area DXers shortwave listening club. When he found half the BADX members in attendance were hams and members of BARS, Doug studied and got his Tech license ASAP and then achieved General class soon afterwards. If you have been on our Wednesday net you have heard Doug running many of them as Net Control. Doug rapidly progressed from enjoying 2M FM to getting on HF SSB and even A.M.!
I feel Doug’s positive attitude and enthusiasm for any aspect of the ham radio hobby will be good for BARS. Check out Doug’s QRZ page here:
Of course, this does not prevent someone else from trying to compete for President or any other position in BARS! Get in touch if you’d like to.
The current election slate is now:
President: Doug Bruce, KC1MJK
