The Ak-Sar-Ben Amateur Radio Club is delighted to announce that one of our long term members Houston Polson, N5YS, (Better known in Omaha as Tinker, KDØYS) has been elected as the next Section Manager of thTinker.jpge ARRL Louisiana Section, starting April 1, 2024. The ballots were counted on Tuesday, February 20, at ARRL Headquarters, and Houston emerged victorious with 200 votes, over the incumbent Louisiana Section Manager Matt Anderson, KD5KNZ.

In Houston's own words, "Guess what – I WON!" Following this exciting win, Houston is gearing up to take on the role of ARRL LA Section Manager, with lots to do over the next six weeks to prepare for the transition.

Houston's journey in amateur radio began in 1984, and his commitment to the hobby is evident through his longstanding membership with the Ak-Sar-Ben Amateur Radio Club in Omaha, Nebraska. As a dedicated Volunteer Examiner and active member of the Central Louisiana Amateur Radio Club, Houston brings a wealth of experience and passion to his new role.

Reflecting on his journey, Houston notes that his roots in amateur radio trace back to the Ak-Sar-Ben Amateur Radio Club, making this achievement special for him and The AARC.

We extend our heartfelt congratulations to Houston Polson, N5YS, and wish him all the best as he embarks on this new chapter as the ARRL LA Section Manager. Let's rally together to support Houston in his endeavors and celebrate this momentous occasion for our fellow club member!
