CQ CQ CQ.  Calling all ARRL Louisiana Section Radio Amateurs.  The time for voting for Louisiana Section Manager is just a few weeks away.  Ballots go out on January 2, 2018 for the term beginning April 1, 2018.

I am John Mark Robertson and my Callsign is K5JMR.   I’m running for Louisiana Section Manager and I would greatly appreciate YOUR consideration and support.

Many of you already know me but for those hams I have not yet met, some important considerations are as follows:

  • Licensed since 2008, currently hold the General Class FCC Amateur Radio License
  • ARRL Life Member, Diamond Club member
  • Currently Louisiana Section Emergency Coordinator
  • Recognized as an A1OP (A1 Operator) by my fellow radio amateur and awarded by ARRL
  • Past President and Board Member of the Shreveport Amateur Radio Association
  • Current Secretary of Amateur Radio Club of Shreveport
  • Director of Louisiana Council of Amateur Radio Clubs (Frequency Coordination)
  • Active Member of Shreveport Digital Team and Charter Member of Minden Amateur DSTAR
  • Louisiana State Police, retired with 25 years of service, 14 years of supervisory experience.
  • Developed a strong working relationship with the Delta Division Director, Vice Director, and other division key personnel. I believe maintaining this is paramount to making the Louisiana Section the very best ARRL Section in the Delta Division
  • Currently formulating a plan to restructure the Louisiana ARES program with the emphasis on building a stronger and larger, better trained group of volunteers employing the “Bottom-Up” method
  • Very Important: My Availability is 24/7

Please, consider me favorably when you receive your election ballot.

 I’m John Mark Robertson, K5JMR and I’m running for ARRL Louisiana Section Manager 2018.

Thank you!!!

John Mark Robertson, K5JMR
