ARRL Senior Laboratory Engineer Zack Lau, KH6CP, has received the
John T. Chambers Award of the Central States VHF Society, for
contributions to VHF.
 
The award was begun in 1970 when it was given to John T. Chambers,
W6NLZ, for his work with KH6UK in the 1960s proving the existence of
West Coast to Hawaii tropospheric ducting.  (Chambers has since died
and his call sign reissued).
 
Lau, 32, is the 23rd recipient of the Chambers Award since its
inception.  A graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, he has
been licensed since 1978 and an ARRL staff member for nine years;
he's senior laboratory engineer.
 
Lau received the award at the Society's 29th conference in Colorado
Springs on July 29.  He was cited not only for his investigative
work on the VHF and UHF bands but also for his help, as an ARRL
staff member, in fielding questions from other amateurs.  KH6CP/1
is a mainstay in VHF and UHF contests as well, often appearing from
New England hilltops.  Zack Lau also is widely known for his
low-power HF accomplishments, including a number of ARRL Sweepstakes
awards in the under-5-watt category.
 
In 1993, the most recent year for which statistics are available,
the Central States VHF Society had 267 members in 39 states and
three foreign countries.  The Society was founded in 1967.  Each
year, the ARRL publishes the Proceedings of the Society's
conference; the 1995 Proceedings are now available from ARRL
Headquarters.
