It is with regret that I accept today the resignation of S. Robert Salow, WA1IDA.
As my “primary” Assistant Section Manager these past four years, Bob has been instrumental in serving as my backup. He’s provided me with sage counsel. Bob has served as an excellent sounding board for many ideas and projects.
WA1IDA has a very long list of accomplishments. He has served as President of the Middlesex Amateur Radio Club, and is the founding President of the Boston Amateur Radio Club. He is a founder of the Council of Eastern Massachusetts Amateur Radio Clubs (CEMARC). Bob has been an Assistant Director of the ARRL New England Division, and its delegate to the ARRL Public Service Advisory Committee.
WA1IDA was also elected Chairperson of the Massachusetts Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (MAVOAD) which supports the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) for all voluntary agencies in the state. Bob has received training for all levels of the Incident Command System.
Please join me in thanking S. Robert Salow, WA1IDA for his long-standing service to the members of the Eastern Massachusetts ARRL Section!
