Glen Caine N6HEW
Awarded CARP Lifetime Achievement Award

After many years of dedicated service to amateur radio and the local community, it is time to say farewell and good luck to Glen Caine N6HEW as he hangs up his EMCOMM hat and moves his family to New Mexico.

Glen has been married to his high school sweetheart Vicki KA6MDM for 51 years and they have two grown adopted daughters Heather and Holly. In 2011 he retired from the County of Fresno after 27 years as an electrician where he worked for 10 years at Valley Medical Center and 17 years at the Fresno County Jail.

He first moved to Fresno in 1971. He obtained his Novice amateur radio license in 1981 with the callsign KA6GDS; upgraded to General in 1991 and then Advanced Class operator in 1984 with the callsign N6HEW. 

Glen’s first amateur radio Emergency Communications (EMCOMM) deployment was in the early 1980’s due to the Fresno FMC Factory Fire. Local officials were worried about toxic chemical release. Glen worked communications at a Red Cross shelter as well as the Fresno County OES in the Health Department building on the Fulton Mall.
