To honor long-time VHF contester Gene Zimmerman, W3ZZ, who became a Silent Key 
on June 3, two new awards have been introduced for the ARRL June VHF Contest in 
Gene's memory.

The ARRL Contest Branch has renamed the plaque for the Overall Winner for the 
Limited Multioperator the Gene Zimmerman, W3ZZ Memorial Plaque. Gene was very 
active as part of the K8GP team in this category. A special thanks to Jeff 
Klein, K1TEO who graciously relinquished his long-time sponsorship of this 
plaque to allow this to happen.

In addition, a new award has been created, thanks to Tim Duffy K3LR and Dave 
Zeph, W9ZRX. The W3ZZ Rookie Award will be awarded to the top Single-Op, Low 
Power score on a minimum of two bands by a "rookie" submitting a log in the 
contest for the first time. This award is open to any operator that has never 
submitted a log to the June VHF Contest.

Both of these awards are available beginning with this weekend's ARRL June VHF
