Wednesday, June 06, 2018 | Comments

Two Radio Club of America (RCA) board members received international awards for their contributions to amateur radio.

Carole Perry, WB2MGP, was named to the CQ Magazine 2018 Amateur Radio Hall of Fame, which recognizes those who have made “significant contributions to amateur radio, to their professional careers or to some other aspect of life on our planet.”

Perry is an RCA fellow and spearheads the RCA youth activities initiative, which has brought amateur radio to young people across the U.S. and overseas.

Chip Cohen, W1YW, received the Hamvention 2018 Technical Achievement Award for his work in pioneering a paradigm shift with the design of fractal antennas. Cohen, who has held a ham license for 52 years, is known for inventing the invisibility clock using fractal antenna techniques and holds 41 U.S. patents. Cohen is an RCA fellow and CEO of Fractal Antenna Systems.

“We are proud of the acknowledgement of the work that Carole and Chip have done,” said Tim Duffy, president of RCA. “We have always known them to be gifted and tireless advocates for amateur radio and it’s so gratifying to see them both recognized in such remarkable ways.”
