TLCPC’s CEO, Robert Wareham, volunteers his time as Vice-Director of the Rocky Mountain Division (RMD) of the American Radio Relay League (ARRL®), the National Association for Amateur Radio. Last weekend he attended the ARRL® Rocky Mountain Division Annual Convention in Ogden, Utah where he met with ham radio operators from around the region (Utah, Wyoming, Colorado, and New Mexico). The high point of the weekend for Wareham was meeting music and audio industry icon Bob Heil of Heil Sound. Bob Heil emphasized how amateur radio technology influenced his life of invention and design during his keynote address and technical seminars. Heil Sound manufactures audio equipment for both amateur radio operators and professional musicians from its headquarters in Fairfield Heights, Illinois. After hearing Heil’s presentation Wareham declared, “That’s it, I am exclusively a Heil microphone user from this point on. Bob has engineered superb technology into all of his products.” Wareham joined with ARRL® Rocky Mountain Division Director Jeff Ryan in listening to questions from constituents attending the conference, and reported to the assembly on legislative, regulatory and member service accomplishments of the ARRL®.
In addition to being the RMD Vice-Director of the ARRL®, Wareham also volunteers his time as State Government Liaison for the Colorado Section of the ARRL®, and Section Emergency Coordinator (SEC) for the Colorado Section. As SEC Wareham coordinates the volunteer activities of over 1,000 amateur radio operators in Colorado who donate their time, resources, and talents to their communities for public service events and disaster response. The Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES®) is part of the Field Operations organization of the ARRL®. More information on the ARRL® or ARES® go to www.arrl.org or https://www.facebook.com/ARRL.org/
