A Note from Jim W8ERW

Fellow Amateurs and Friends,

My departure from Tiffin and Seneca County come with a bit of sadness in leaving behind many wonderful experiences and big handful of friendships that I shall miss greatly as I join the ARRL North Texas Section. I have enjoyed the many events, projects, meetings and the opportunity to also see many of you gain your license and become a part of the hobby that we love.

There is much here to be proud of as each of you has been a part of so many of the great accomplishments that we have worked to make happen. From the smallest efforts in helping each other to making the Cross Country Carnival a huge success each year, Seneca County Hams always give their best to make it all happen. The close relationship we enjoy supporting our EOC lead by fellow Amateurs Dan and Mike is surely another very positive and rewarding aspect of the Amateur Radio community here in Seneca County. ARES and the Seneca Radio Club often working together have been a lot of fun for me over the years that I made Tiffin my home.

I commend all of you for the good work along with an always friendly, supportive and dedicated effort to make Amateur Radio a value added resource to the community we serve. Each with a special skill or talent all pitching in to not only get the job done but to showcase our capabilities to the community and fellow Hams who benefit from the pool of experience that is available. This is what you are and what Amateur Radio is all about.

So as I prepare to leave this coming week, let me say Thank You for all that you do and for giving me some of the best memories I will ever have. I wish you all the best in the years to come.

Please stay in touch, w8erw5574@gmail.com

Thanks & 73,
