|NZART President Roy ZL2KH read the citation that covered Doug's long list of technical achievements, offices held at NZART and branch level, and mentioned the over 200 technical articles publish in amateur and professional journals. Roy also mentioned the huge value Doug has provided to the Association, branches and members through his fixed station engineering and co-ordination work.
Doug is well known as a leader in the area of ATV and the new digital ATV systems using the best international accepted TV standards which he has demonstrated recently.
In the Group Doug has served as President and filled many other roles and has always been a trusted advisor of the Group's committee. Doug's work with the Administration (RSM etc) has been very valuable in looking after our spectrum access and securing such valuable privileges such as the country wide STSP licences for NZART.
The citation for ZL2TAR submitted by Wellington VHF Group can now be viewed.
Congratulations to Doug from all of us at Wellington VHF Group, Branch 74 NZART.
