ARRL Idaho Section


I was very pleased to learn that our very own ARRL Idaho Section Manager
Dan Marler, K7REX has been named as a recipient of a very prestigious
2022 Yasme Excellence Award. (One of only two awardees for the year!)
The Yasme Excellence Awards are presented to individuals who through
their own service, creativity, effort and dedication have made a
significant contribution to amateur radio. The contribution may be in
recognition of technical, operating or organizational achievement as all
three are necessary for amateur radio to grow and prosper.

The awards are categorized roughly in accord with the FCC’s “Basis
and Purpose” for amateur radio as consistent with the Foundation’s
purposes and expertise. Those areas of amateur service include
noncommercial communications service, advancement of the technical and
operating arts, technical training and international goodwill.

>From the Yasme website: “Dan Marler, K7REX – When the COVID pandemic
led to cessation of in-person meetings, training sessions and
gatherings, Dan converted a small limited-membership Zoom platform to
the open presentation forum known as RATPAC. In the subsequent two
years, RATPAC has hosted over two hundred online presentations that have
been viewed by thousands of radio amateurs. Among the wide-ranging
topics, half focus on public-service communications, while the rest
address technical, operating, scientific and general-interest topics
offered by a host of presenters. The recordings of these sessions are
available for public viewing and constitute a valuable resource for the
amateur radio community.”

I have had the privilege to conduct a few technical presentations for
RATPAC over the last two years, and his seminars were always well
attended. My hearty congratulations go out to Dan! Well deserved.
