N6AJO Leaves Vice Director Post

Posted by af6aq on 13th June 2009

Below you will find a note from my Vice Director, Andy Oppel, N6AJO. Andy served as my Assistant Section Manager during my terms as East Bay Section Manager. When my very good friend Jim Maxwell, W6CF, passed away in February of 2003, making me the Pacific Division Director, I asked Andy to be my Vice Director. He served in both posts very well, advising me on many issues, and providing me with his insightful  comments. I’ll miss having him as my back-up, and I know the other Board members will miss seeing him at Board meetings. He’ll also be missed at club meetings, hamfests, and conventions in the Pacific Division. Thank you, Andy, for all that you have done for me, and for Amateur Radio and the American Radio Relay League.

Bob Vallio, W6RGG


I regret to inform you that family and work issues have forced me to resign as your ARRL Pacific Division Vice Director. I have enjoyed being able to serve you in that capacity for the past 6+ years and as East Bay Section Manager for 3 years prior to that. I very much appreciate the support and friendship offered by many of you and I hope I still get a chance to see many of you from time to time.

ARRL Pacific Division Director Bob Vallio will be announcing my replacement shortly. Trust me when I say you will be in good hands.

Andy Oppel, N6AJO
