OTN Stewart Day Award 2015In 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:
As in preceding years, there were several excellent contributions published in
OTN which were considered for the 2015 award. It is always a difficult
decision for the committee. However, after substantial discussion, it was
decided to award the OTN Stewart Day Award 2015 to Herman Willemsen VK2IXV in recognition of the high standards of his
original articles. He had five articles published in the March 2015 issue, and
four articles published in the September 2015 issue. As well, Herman
has provided strong support to OTN
as a regular contributor over many years and his articles have covered a broad
range of subjects with something to appeal to all readers.
In making the 2015 award to
Herman, the RAOTC management committee also made special mention of the
stalwart contributors Clive Wallis VK6CSW and Lloyd Butler VK5BR who
continue outstanding and continuing support to OTN..
