RCA Directors Chip Cohen and Carole Perry were recently recognized by the amateur radio community for their efforts.
Each year RCA solicits its membership to submit names of people deserving of an Award, or for nominations to the rank of Fellow. This is a very important process, so that the industry can celebrate the achievements of those that have helped to advance the wireless art.
Please note that some Awards are for RCA members only; others are for anyone in the wireless industry. This is made clear if you look at About/Awards on the Website. If you click on a specific award, it will tell you the criteria and past recipients of that award.
The forms and instructions can be found below, or on the Awards tab.
