Dick Bean, K1HC, writes:[Norfolk County Radio Association] Associate members Ed Lajoie, W1MA, and Jack Wyatt, W1JAW, both Cape Cod residents, received a double surprise when NCRA President Dick Bean, K1HC, invited them to lunch on November 6 with a mystery guest, who turned out to be their long-time mutual friend and fellow NCRA member and club Secretary, Dave, K1HRV.
The second part of the surprise was presenting both Ed and Jack the ARRL Elmer award. Ed has been an Elmer to many hams in several clubs and was a [World Radiosport Team Championship] volunteer in the past local WRTC competition. Jack was an Elmer to many hams, and Dick, related how Jack came back to Jack’s high school alma mater, Catholic Memorial [CM] High School in West Roxbury, to meet with and encourage the then current members of the amateur club, including Dick, who was then WN1KDL. Ed was also a member of the Catholic Memorial Amateur Radio Club but preceded both Jack and Dick in his years of attendance at CM.
