From ARRL: Thanks Go to Vaca Valley Radio Club Mentor Bob Hewitt
NEWINGTON, CT, Jun 25, 2004--As a youngster, Scott Morrison became fascinated with Amateur Radio by watching his grandfather, Wilbur Morrison, W6OSD, operating his equipment in his ham shack. The younger Morrison's exposure to ham radio led him to become a US Army radio operator, but he never got his Amateur Radio license. Unfortunately, by the time Morrison left the service, his grandfather had died, leaving him without a mentor--or Elmer--to help him pursue his interest in ham radio.

Just by chance, however, he came across the ARRL Web site, and he was able to search for a club in his area. Morrison contacted the Vaca Valley Radio Club and was referred to Bob Hewitt, K6HEW. A ham since 1952, Hewitt is active in several clubs including the Vaca Valley and Trilogy Radio clubs. It wasn't long before Hewitt had Morrison attending meetings at Vaca Valley and studying the license manual. Hewitt took Morrison to an Amateur Radio license examination session at Trilogy Radio Club, where he passed the Technician license test. ...read more...    6/25/2004

Yolo County radio coverage test
The Yolo ARES radio coverage test Saturday morning, June 12, went very, very well.

We had Clay and Linda aa6mr/kf6snf down in the Clarksburg area at the fire dept. They tried out there new Starfire antenna and it worked quite well.

Clinton, kf6wlc, went north to Knights Landing and then went west to county line road and worked back south to Woodland.

Greg, kg6sjt, went out to the river road north of West Sacramento and worked his way south to the port and then crossed the causeway to Davis and went south to the old air force transmitter site by grasslands park.

Net control was run by our new member Julia, kg6oys, using my station north of winters. She did a GREAT!! job. We had good coverage from all locations, a few locations on the fringe were a little weak but readable. Every one did a great job , thanks to everyone that helped.
