The Board of Directors of the Yasme Foundation (www.yasme.org) has announced the recipients of the Yasme Excellence Awards for 2014, and other actions.
IARU Region 1 is delighted to learn that Lisa Leenders, PA2LS, the Chair of the Region 1 Youth Working Group and Florin-Cristian Predescu, YO9CNU have been awarded a Yasme Excellence award for their work in organizing and promoting Youngsters on the Air (YOTA) and amateur radio youth activities.
The Yasme Excellence Award is presented to individuals who, through their own service, creativity, effort and dedication, have made a significant contribution to amateur radio. The contribution may be in recognition of technical, operating or organizational achievement, as all three are necessary for amateur radio to grow and prosper.
Furthermore, the Yasme Foundation has awarded IARU Region 1 a grant of $ 5,000 in support of youth activities in amateur radio.
In a separate action, the Yasme Foundation has awarded IARU Region 1 Member Society, the Egyptian Radio Amateurs Society for Development (ERASD) a grant of $ 2,000 in support of its activities.
In acknowledging the award to IARU Region 1 for its youth programme, the President of IARU Region 1, Don Beattie, G3BJ, said “We are delighted that Yasme has chosen to recognise and support the work we are doing here in IARU Region 1. The future of amateur radio lies in our ability to attract and retain high calibre entrants to our ranks. Whilst the march of communications technology might, to some, seem to cast a question-mark over “traditional” amateur radio, our view is that there is much to attract today’s youth into our ranks. With Yasme’s financial support, we will be able to work even more energetically to help our Member Societies bring focus to attracting the new blood which amateur radio needs so much”

This is to publicise the jubilees mentioned in the title. The selection of the special event stations was based on the capability of intensive operation under an assigned call sign, and on assuming activation of club stations which train future radio amateurs, as well as of such stations already activated by young fully licensed radio amateurs.
This action is based on the assumption of operation on the air during the following period: 01.01.2015 - 30.04.2015, encompassing two dates referring to both jubilees, namely - the 24th February 2015 - the 85th anniversary of establishment of the PZK and the 18th April 2015 - the 90th anniversary of establishment of the IARU.
For more information, please visit the following website: http://85.pzk.org.pl/.
Have a lot of fun, see you!

Monsoon floods that hit parts of Malaysia and Thailand appears now to have eased but the big clean-up continues.
Johnny Tan 9M8DB of the Malaysian Amateur Radio Transmitters' Society (MARTS) says the flooding is the worst for a long time in the north of Malaysia, claiming lives and forcing thousands to evacuate.
After being active on 7.110 MHz for some days, the official word is that all have now been stood down from maintaining links to handle disaster traffic.
Johnny 9M8DB says stations in Kuala Lumpur, Kuantan, Kemaman and Bachok remain active for a while for local welfare messages and urgent communications in the flood affected states.
Meantime the Radio Amateur Society of Thailand (RAST) Secretary Champ Muangamphun E21EIC described the flooding in southern Thailand as not disrupting normal communications, such as mobile phone networks or the Internet. The need for emergency communications by radio amateurs was not needed, but support was available to help those in Malaysia.
Champ E21EIC says flood levels have decreased slightly while assistance by distributing food in flooded areas was under way.
