Awards & Birthdays

Ben White Memorial Net

People come into our lives and pass through swiftly.
A very few come into our lives and remain forever in our hearts.
Larry Frazer was one of the very few.

– Jack K2GWNAfter Larry’s tragic death on September 30, 1992, seventeen of his HBN friends set up the Larry Frazer Memorial Fund:

N1DHT,W1EOF,WA1TBY,W2EAG,WI2G,K2GWN, W2WSS,W3KOD,W3QQ,K3RC,WA3UNX,W4DJ, W4FRR,NJ4L,K4MTX,K4ZB,WB5ZJN,KA8WNO

All members of the Hit and Bounce Net were asked to submit suggestions as to how to use the fund. The decision was made to purchase a suitable trophy to be awarded to a deserving member in memory of W4SUS.

Mike, KA5NNG suggested the paddle. Jack, K2GWN inspired the inscription and the tribute. Don, WA3UNX took charge of the purchase, engraving and the dust cover. Jack, KA8WNO offered to build a sturdy shipping carton if needed and Pete, W2WSS volunteered to design a certificate to accompany the trophy.

The first award committee was Jack KA8WNO, George N1DHT and Gale NJ4L.  Second committee was Don WA3UNX, Harry, N3DE, and John, K8LJG.

The paddle was awarded quarterly until  January 2007, at which time it was discontinued. It was resumed January 2010, and the current Award Committee is composed of some four Hit and Bounce Net members:

WD8Q Chair
W2EAG
W2MTA
K8LJG
[K8LJG, John, is an original WASC member.]

An added note – the FB wooden case protecting the W4SUS keyer was constructed by one of the original WASC members,  Jack KA8WNO.
