The ARRL Board of Directors, meeting in Newington, Connecticut, on 20-21 January 2017, honored several radio amateurs for services to their communities, the world, and for “generating interest in and growth of the service, preservation of spectrum, and fulfillment of ARRL’s mission.”

Among the honorees are Hawaii Island radio amateurs Richard Darling (AH6G) and Barbara Darling (NH7FY), who were recipients of the ARRL 2016 International Humanitarian Award.

Here’s the official citation from the ARRL:

“Richard Darling, AH6G, and Barbara Darling, NH7FY, are the recipients of the 2016 International Humanitarian Award. The Board cited the couple’s support of past International Humanitarian Award winner John Bush, KH6DLK/V63JB, and their “significant material support” to his efforts in the Federated States of Micronesia. “[T]hey have supported these ongoing efforts over many years with on-the-air activities including communication during weather events, including several typhoons, as well as other emergency activities, including assistance to boaters in trouble,” the Board’s resolution said.”

Richard and Barbara are active members of the Big Island Amateur Radio Club and lend their expertise to a variety of amateur radio activities ranging from the ARRL Field Day to mentoring new operators.
