Thursday Night, December 21 2017, we held the Regional Amateur Radio Christmas Party. One of the things NOARC does at that time is announce the Jimmy Whitaker NOARC Ham of the Year. We don’t do nominations for the award, we ask all the Hams in the to list the 3 Hams they thought were Ham of the year.
For the first time since we revived the award, co-winners were chosen. The winners both have something in common, something noticed by many members, their willingness to roll up their sleeves to make things happen! Our members were not surprised to find Mike Sharp (KK4LLS) and Arc Thames (W4CPD) named as co-winners of the NOARC Ham of the Year!
