North Texas Section News

Jay Urish W5GM was elected as the new ARRL North Texas Section Manager, and he took office on April 1 of this year. Among Jay's top priorities in serving as section manager was a fresh, functional, and updated website.
It took a little over a month for Jay to gain control of the domain, www.arrlntx.org. Once the domain was transferred, he was quick to appoint Jerry Goodson W5BFF as webmaster. Jerry was able to download most, if not all, of the legacy information that was published on the previous website. Development has been slow starting, but great strides have been made since the conclusion of the 2017 ARRL Field Day. Despite all of the advancements in developing the new website, there is still a lot of work left to be done.
