Hi guys and gals of the Oklahoma section! Well, it's been a pretty quiet spring for the most part with fewer than normal sever storms and tornados....hopefully the rest of the year will be the same...uneventful. I would like to congratulate Sarah Olsen, KF5GTB of Eufaula. Susan has been awarded the Allen and Bertha Watson Memorial Scholarship by the ARRL Foundation. Way to go Sarah! Remember, Field Day is just ahead. Wilma, W5WRO, my XYL and I will be making the yearly tour of field day sites. We are planning to hit the OKC sites beginning with Edmond and on down I-35...we will hit Ardmore and Marietta. From there we will head back up Hwy 177 to Shawnee and depending on the time by then, we will probably head back to Stillwater. If you are in this tri9p area, make sure your site is on the ARRL Field Day Locater page. OKC's Ham Holiday is July 27-28. Valerie Hotzfeld, N9VL will be the guest speaker at the banquet Friday evening. Valerie is frequently on the Ham Nation podcast. Plan now to join the event. Also Friday evening after the banquet, there will be a Wouff Hong ceremony. Contact Tom Webb, for more info. I would like to announce Gary Way, AE5OF is our new Official Observer Coordinator (OOC). Gary will be contacting all our section OO’s very soon. It looks like I will be your Section Manager for another 2 years as the nomination window closed on Friday June 8th and I was the only nominee. That's all for now. Everyone do your best to stay cool and well hydrated on Field Day! 73's Kevin O'Dell, N0IRW
