Phil Mullins W4PRE In Memoriam

Phil Mullins W4PRE Receives ARRL Elmer Award

On behalf of the Membership of the Chattanooga Amateur Radio Club and the Hamfest Chattanooga Management Team & On-Site Staff, with great sadness, we report that long-time member and former CARC Director, Phil Mullins W4PRE has passed away.  A memorial service was held and we all gave our final 73s.

Two of Phil’s greatest loves in Amateur Radio were Elmering and Hamfest Chattanooga.  Phil (left) is seen in the photo above receiving an ARRL Elmer Award for his outstanding mentoring and help to newcomers to our hobby.  Phil was a friend to all and never missed an opportunity to help anyone.  Antennas were one of his favorite things and a good day in ham radio for Phil was trying out new antennas.

For the last several years, Phil extended his service to our club and the ham radio community at large through his role as Vendor Manager for Hamfest Chattanooga.  He enjoyed the challenge and working with our family of vendors to make sure they were happy and had what they needed to be successful.

We will all miss his smile, his willingness to help, and his support of our club and Amateur Radio for so many years.
