SB QST ARL ARLB086
ARLB086 West Central Florida Section Manager Appointed

Dave Armbrust, AE4MR, of Sarasota, Florida, has been appointed to
serve as the first Section Manager for the new West Central Florida
Section. In consultation with Southeastern Division Director Frank
Butler, W4RH, and the West Central Florida Section Committee, ARRL
Field Services Manager Rick Palm, K1CE, named Armbrust to serve a
nearly one-year term. He'll assume office when the new section
becomes effective January 15, 2000, and his term will run until
January 1, 2001.

West Central Florida Section Committee Chairman Paul Toth, K2SEC,
was pleased with Armbrust's selection. ''I am confident Dave will be
an effective Section Manger,'' he said. ''He has my full support.''

For his part, Armbrust, 43, was champing at the bit. ''Watch for
great things from the West Central Florida Section,'' he told Palm
and Toth this week. ''We intend to make it a model section.''

Armbrust said the new section, approved by the ARRL Board last month
after a lopsided vote by the affected counties earlier this year,
already enjoys a strong sense of unity. ''We are all looking forward
to making this section second to none,'' he said. The West Central
Florida section consists of Charlotte, DeSoto, Hardee, Highlands,
Hillsborough, Manatee, Pinellas, Polk, and Sarasota counties.

Armbrust is available via e-mail at ae4mr@arrl.net or by telephone
at 941-923-1688. His address is 1641 Baywinds Lane, Sarasota, FL
34231-3040. The West Central Florida Section Committee's Web site is
