Fred Fish Memorial Award                                                                                      Many of you know Larry Lambert-NØLL from Smith Center is a serious VHF enthusiast. Recently he completed a journey that began more than 30 years ago. Late in August Larry worked the final continental U.S. grid square on 6 meters in his quest for the Fred Fish Memorial Award.   33 years, 8 months it took to make contact in all 488 grid squares in the 48 contiguous states.While traveling through Omaha Larry met with WN0L who checked his cards. With that part of the process complete the application was then submitted to ARRL HQ. On October 12 Larry earned FFMA# 6. He used old school techniques and determination to reach this goal. Fred Fish Memorial Award was created in honor of Fred Fish, W5FF (SK), who is the first amateur to have accomplished this feat.  Congratulations Larry !
