CARP BoD Nominee – WB6LLW Norm Shomber

Candidate Statement for Norman Shomber WB6LLW

I made my first amateur radio contact as a Novice licensee (KNØIJT) in January 1957. Later that year I upgraded to General class and then in 1972 I upgraded to Advance class license which I still hold.  My current interests are satellite communications, rag chewing on 75 and 40 meters, and outside of ham radio I dabble in electronic industrial controls.

Thanks to the outstanding leadership and guidance exhibited by our club’s officers and directors we enjoy a leadership role as a premier ham radio club in central California. This is evidenced by our public service providing support and safety communications for various community events, by providing classes to encourage and teach potential hams, by fostering outreach programs to further the growth of amateur radio, and by participating in ham radio activities such as Field Day.

Over the years I have held various offices in similar 501(c)(3) organizations and am familiar with their administration. I have an avid interest in the Clovis Amateur Radio Pioneers and its future, and with your vote and my 60 years’ experience as a licensed ham I look forward to contributing to the continued success and growth of our club.
