OTN Stewart Day Award 2014
In 2003 the RAOTC management
committee decided to establish an annual award, entitled the OTN
Stewart Day Award, in order to commemorate Stewart’s service to the
RAOTC in producing OTN magazine over a long period of time.
This award, in the form of a colourful certificate, is to be presented
each year to the RAOTC member whose original contribution to OTN has
been judged by the management committee to be the best published in
that calendar year.
The list of award winners since its inception is as follows:
in all preceding years, 2014 presented a real challenge to the RAOTC
committee because of the large number of excellent contributions
published in OTN during the year.
After much discussion, it came down to five finalists – Tony Argentino
VK6ATI; Dean Blackman VK3TX; Lloyd Butler VK5BR; Herman Willemsen
VK2IXV; and Clive Wallis VK6CSW.
Eventually, after much further deliberation, it was eventually decided
to present the OTN Stewart Day Award 2014 to Lloyd Butler VK5BR for his
outstanding original articles ‘AM broadcast stations in South
Australia’ published in the March 2014 issue of OTN, and ‘Radio and the
early DC mains in South Australia’ published in the September 2014
issue of OTN.
The RAOTC management committee would like to thank all contributors to
OTN journal. Without their invaluable contributions the RAOTC would not
be able to produce such an interesting and popular publication.
