for a new 2-year term of office that starts on July 1. Parkes, of
Layton, received 481 votes; his opponent, Pat Malan, N7PAT, of South

since 1999. Ballots were counted and verified at ARRL Headquarters
on May 21.

Elsewhere, John Gotthardt, K1UAF, of Wolfeboro, will become Section

Gotthardt is currently the Section Traffic Manager and also serves
as Net Manager and Official Relay Station.

New Jersey SM Rob Roschewsk, KA2PBT, decided not to run for a new
