We will be presenting our first annual "Microwave Achievement Award" at 
this years Microwave Update, October 19-22, 2006.  We are now accepting 
for this award. The deadline for nominations is September 30.

This award is being presented in memory of Earl Price, W8MGJ.  Earl 
designed, constructed and operated microwave systems.  According to Earl's 
son, Terry
Price, K8ISK, Earl was an exemplary Elmer to all microwave enthusiasts!  He 
consistently showed outstanding achievement on the microwave bands.  There
was never a question or problem that he didn't cheerfully address for his 
fellow hams.

Following Earl's example, we are looking for nominees that are active on 
the microwave bands, show technical prowess, and are Elmers to other hams 
in the
microwave community.  All amateurs are eligible, Novice through Extra.  Do 
you know an outstanding amateur in your club, community, or from on-the-air
contacts?  If so, gather your support materials and submit your nominee by 
completing the "Microwave Achievement Award" application found on the web site

A winner will be decided by the Awards Committee, based upon the 
information received, not the number of nominations submitted.  Magazine 
articles, newsletters,
newspaper clippings, videos, testimonials, etc. will better inform the 
Awards Committee about your nominee. These materials become the property of the
committee and will not be returned.

Please scan all of your supporting documents and attach them to an email 
addressed to awards at microwaveupdate.org.  Please make sure that your name is in
the "subject" field so that we can easily match your email with the
