Rebecca Rich, KBØVVT, is a twenty three year old graduate from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) with the degree of Bachelor of Science in Electrical Science and Engineering and just days ago she earned the degree of Master of Engineering in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. Both of Rebecca’s parents are amateur radio operators. Rebecca became interested in amateur radio while watching her mother study for her amateur radio license. Rebecca’s father developed a computer program to help her mother study amateur radio. Rebecca began playing with the program, and along with help from her parents, she started learning the material. Rebecca earned her Technician Class license when she was seven years old. This accomplishment was overshadowed because she would soon pass all written and code exam requirements, including the 20 word per minute code exam, to earn the Extra Class license when she was just eight years old. Rebecca is proud to tell people that she has been an amateur radio operator for more than half of her life. Rebecca’s 2004 Dayton Youth Forum presentation was entitled “Half My Life In Amateur Radio.”

The 2012 Dayton Hamvention celebrated the 25th anniversary of the Youth Forum moderated by Carole Perry WB2MGP.  As part of the celebration, Carole gave past presenters the opportunity to give an update on what they are doing now and to once again share their ham radio experiences.  The following is my presentation given during the 25th anniversary of the Youth Forum:

The above photograph was taken at the 2005 ARRL Kansas State Convention when the Hiram Percy Maxim Memorial Award was presented to Rebecca by the late ARRL Midwest Director Wade Walstrom WØEJ.

In 2005 Rebecca was awarded the Hiram Percy Maxim Memorial Award for her dedication to the amateur radio service, along with her academic excellence, her emphasis on community service activities and her continued effort to introduce others to amateur radio.

I am proud to have been a member of the PJ2T team that finished first place in the world during the 2006 ARRL DX Phone contest. Check out the following link to see photographs of my recent PJ2T adventure:


Thanks for all the PJ2/KB0VVT radio fun that I had on the island of Curacao before and after the ARRL DX Phone contest. It was most likely me or perhaps my mother if you worked a YL at PJ2T during the 2006 ARRL DX Phone contest:
