ARLB025 Phil Temples, K9HI, Appointed as New England Division Vice
Director

ARRL President Rick Roderick, K5UR, has appointed Phil Temples,
K9HI, of Watertown, Massachusetts, as New England Division Vice
Director. He succeeds Mike Raisbeck, K1TWF, who was elected earlier
this year as ARRL First Vice President. President Roderick made the
appointment after consulting with New England Director Fred
Hopengarten, K1VR, and the region's Section Managers.

"I want to thank all of those who forwarded their recommendations to
Director Hopengarten," Temples said. "Mike Raisbeck left some big
shoes to fill. I look forward to working with Fred, and to advise
and assist him with various tasks and board committee assignments.
One task I'm especially eager to tackle is launching a New England
Division website."

An ARRL Life Member, Temples has been licensed for 50 years,
initially as WN9EAY in Indiana. He has written articles for QST and
contributed articles for the ARRL website. He also recently
co-authored a chapter in the Amateur Radio Public Service Handbook.

Temples served three terms as Eastern Massachusetts Section Manager
and now is an Assistant SM and an Assistant New England Division
Director. He's also held ARRL field appointments as Affiliated Club
Coordinator and Public Information Officer and currently serves as
program chair for the ARRL New England Division Convention.

Temples has been active in MARS, the National Traffic System, and as
an Emergency Coordinator, and he enjoys CW. He holds a degree in
electrical engineering from Purdue University.

Temples has actively promoted instruction and licensing and is a
Volunteer Examiner under the ARRL, W5YI, and Greater Los Angeles ARG
Volunteer Examiner Coordinators. He's currently involved with New
England Amateur Radio, Inc. in administering remote exam sessions
during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Temples is employed at Boston College as a computer systems
administrator.
