New West Gulf Division Vice Director Appointed


ARRL President Rick Roderick, K5UR, has announced his choice of past South Texas Section Manager Lee Cooper, W5LHC, of Leander, Texas, to be the new Vice Director for the West Gulf Division.

“I’ve known Lee for a number of years and really look forward to having him on the Board team,” Roderick said.

Cooper’s appointment fills a vacancy created when former West Gulf Division Vice Director John Robert Stratton, N5AUS, moved up to the Director’s chair in January after Director Dr. David Woolweaver, K5RAV, announced his retirement. Cooper served as South Texas Section Manager for 9 years before stepping down in 2018.

He also served as Assistant Director for Emergency Communications in the West Gulf Division, and was a founding member of the Texas Division of Emergency Management Communications Coordination Group.
