Colorado Radio Amateurs Recognized for Fires, Floods Response
ARRL Rocky Mountain Division Director Brian Mileshosky, N5ZGT, earlier this month presented the radio amateurs of Colorado with a plaque in appreciation of their assistance in the aftermath of the wildfires and flash floods that struck that state earlier this year.
“Director Mileshosky and other members of the ARRL Executive Committee, which was meeting in Aurora, Colorado, invited Colorado Section Manager Jack Ciaccia, WMØG, and SEC Robert Wareham, NØESQ, to join us for dinner, so we could thank the amateurs in Colorado, through them, for all their work during the fires and floods,” explained ARRL President Kay Craigie, N3KN.
The inscription on the plaque reads, “Presented to the leaders, members and volunteers of Colorado ARES and the entire Colorado Section field organization. In appreciation for your service and dedication during and following the wildfires and flooding of 2013.” It was signed by Rocky Mountain Director Mileshosky and Vice Director Dwayne Allen, WY7FD.
