Motorola Solutions has just begun a three year Corporate Sustaining Sponsorship of RCA!

Motorola Solutions is a world leader in public safety and public service wireless communications.
The 100th anniversary of time broadcast station WWV will be held between 28 September and 2 October 2019. Amateur radio operators can contact a special events station set up to commemorate the event. Educators can use the event as a teachable opportunity to present the science and physics of the station, and to participate via school amateur radio stations contacting the Ft. Collins amateur radio station. Further information can be found at the Website www.wwv100.com.
RCA members may wish to partner with local middle or high schools, or scout groups, to help their local youth participate in the event.
For the second year in a row, IWCE and RCA have jointly chosen a group of 15 young wireless professionals (under the age of 35). They were chosen for “executing some of our industry’s most innovative ideas, showing creativity and initiative.” Their names were announced at the IWCE tradeshow in March. All of the young professionals receive a one year membership in RCA, thanks to the IWCE show management.
The press release with all the names is HERE.

RCA Director Carole Perry has been leading RCA’s Youth Initiative for over 30 years. Carole’s mission is to get middle and high school aged youth interested in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) using the vehicle of amateur radio.
Each year Carole attends numerous youth and amateur radio events all over the U.S., and even overseas. One of the events she has been attending is the “Hamcation” event in Orlando Florida, and this year they decided to start a new legacy award in honor of Carole. Carole was the first recipient of it: The Carole Perry Educator of the Year Award! Each year going forward an educator will be chosen to receive this new award, based on their promoting the use of amateur radio among youth.
Congratulations to Carole for her pioneering work in introducing youth to STEM subjects in school!!
