The Wyoming Section wiki page is sorely out of date. I took the liberty of removing lots of unused pages and did a little updating.

If you have had access or want to help with keeping this page viable for the section, please email me with any information you would like posted.

The webpage is: http://wyomingsection.org/wiki/index.php/Main_Page

Greeting Everyone!

As your new Section Manager, I thought I would introduce myself.

I am retired a Navy Senior Chief Electronics Technician after serving 24
years. Married with two grown boys. My wife Amy is call sign WY7AJB. We
served in the Midwest, both coasts, Guam and Germany.

I got my license in 2007 and tested straight to General. YES. I am a
no-code operator. I upgraded to Amateur Extra in 2015. I enjoy
contesting and some digital.

Beside being your Section Manager, I am the President of the Sweetwater
Amateur Radio Club, the VEC for testing locally, PIO and local
Government liaison.

I would be remiss if I didn’t thank Jack Mitchell N7MJ for his
previous leadership and service and mentorship to me as I step into this
role.

There has been a lot of public discussion lately of the ARRL Technician
Enhancement Proposal officially designated RM-11828 to add limited HF
privileges to the Technician License.

There has been a working group for years soliciting input from radio
amateurs to your Directors before this proposal was ever put forward.

I understand many of you worked hard learning code to get your license
and it took time. In many cases, lots of time. That doesn’t mean we
shouldn’t change with the times. When Marconi and the OM first got
into radio, I don’t think they envisioned satellites, but they are a
regular part of our operating today.

For those of you who feel strongly against this proposal, make your
feelings known to the FCC by the April 15th deadline. If they get enough
negative feedback the likelihood of them approving it is small.

To threaten to sever ties with the ARRL over this is counter-productive.
The ARRL does many good things for our community from LOTW, the QST with
non-biased reviews of equipment, sending out speakers for conventions,
etc.

I think we get a lot for our membership.

I look forward to meeting as many of you as possible over the next
year.
