ARLB010 Dean Feken, KL7MA, Appointed Oklahoma Section Manager

Dean Feken, KL7MA, of Perry, has been appointed as the new ARRL
Oklahoma Section Manager. Feken is taking over the Section Manager
reins from John Thomason, WB5SYT, who was just appointed Vice
Director of the ARRL West Gulf Division. In turn, Thomason replaces
Dr David Woolweaver, K5RAV, who moved up to Director with the
retirement of Division Director Coy Day, N5OK. Thomason had been
Section Manager of Oklahoma since April 2003.

The Rules and Regulations of the ARRL Field Organization state that
when a vacancy in the office of Section Manager occurs between
elections, the position is filled by appointment by the Membership
and Volunteer Programs Manager, in consultation with the Director.
MVP Manager Dave Patton, NN1N, consulted with Woolweaver and
Thomason in filling the Section Manager position.

Feken, an Extra class licensee, has been the Oklahoma Official
Observer Coordinator since spring 2004 and an Official Observer
since fall 2003. Feken's term as Section Manager continues through
September 30, 2010.

The nomination announcement for the next term of office for Oklahoma
Section Manager is scheduled to appear in the April 2010 issue of
QST.
