ARLX013 Hamvention honors trio
 
The Dayton Hamvention has announced its three major award winners
for 1995.
 
The Hamvention Amateur of the Year is Rosalie White, WA1STO.
Rosalie, 45, is manager of the ARRL Educational Activities
Department, a member of the Shuttle Amateur Radio EXperiment (SAREX)
Working Group, and coordinates ARRL continuing education workshops
held at major conventions around the country.  She holds an Advanced
class license and has been a licensed amateur since 1970.
 
Winner of the Hamvention Special Achievement award is Ed Briner,
WA3TVG, of Acme, Pennsylvania.  Since 1979, Ed, who is 68, has been
involved in humanitarian work providing medical assistance through
the Medical Amateur Radio Council (MARCO).  He is editor of the
MARCO newsletter.
 
Philip Ferrell, K7PF, is the Hamvention Technical Excellence Award
recipient for 1995.  Phil, 61, holds a doctoral degree in electrical
engineering, and is retired from the Boeing Company in Seattle.  The
Hamvention cited him for developing ''FingerPrinting,'' a method of
identifying radio transmitters by their on-the-air ''signature.''
 
1995 marks the fourth out of the last five years that an ARRL
official or employee has been the Hamvention's Ham of the Year.  In
addition to Rosalie White, recent winners have included Hudson
Division Director Steve Mendelsohn, WA2DHF; retired ARRL General
Manager (and now International Amateur Radio Union President) Dick
