I received this letter from the ARRL today concerning my appointment as the public information officer for our club:
That was nice of them!
As someone who worked in newspapers for a while, and currently works in a public information office, it seemed like a good fit for me. Sadly, the only press release I have crafted so far — for Winter Field Day — didn’t gain any interest from the media back in January. When the turnout for WFD tanked, I was quietly relieved the media didn’t show up.
Since summer Field Day will be in a popular public park this year, I hope I can rally the local TV stations to come out and see what’s going with amateur radio in our city.
