New WCF Section Website Debuts Today


PRESS RELEASE (12/31):  The new ARRL West Central Florida Section has debuted the newly redesigned ARRL WCF Section Website on Wednesday December 31, 2014.  The site is running on the WordPress engine which will make maintenance and getting information updated much easier than with other platforms.

The ARRL WCF Section wishes to thank Dennis Griffin W4DG, for his 10 years of service as Section Webmaster and to congratulate him for continuing in his capacity as Official Observer Coordinator.  Griffin decided to retire from serving as Assistant Section Manager – Webmaster, but is staying on for another term as Official Observer Coordinator.  Griffin is being succeeded by Judson Bracewell KJ4IDH as Assistant Section Manager – Webmaster.

Bracewell has been working for the past 10 years as an I.T. professional, having worked for Brighthouse Networks.  Bracewell now owns his own computer repair business in Lake Wales serving enterprise and residental customers.


ASM & Webmaster

SM-elect, Darrell Davis, KT4WX has notified me that he has appointed new ASM’s as well as a new webmaster, effective January 1, 2015. I’m certain, there will be a whole new look for this website.

It has been an honor to have been asked by both previous SM’s to serve as an ASM and the Webmaster, as well as many other WCF appointments, during the past twelve (12) years.

I have been asked to stay on as the Section OOC, in Darrell’s new Section Cabinet and will be glad to support him and continue my support of the WCF ARRL Section, in any way possible subject to my health issues, as well as family’s health issues.

As Life Member of the ARRL for over 45 years of my 57 years as a licensed Amateur Radio operator, I have served in many positions over the past half-century, none of which I have enjoyed as much as my participation in the ARRL WCF Section!

It has been my pleasure to be of service to all amateurs in the ARRL West Central Florida Section.

73, Dennis Griffin, W4DG

ASM, OOC & Webmaster

Darrell Davis, KT4WX elected WCF Section Manager

Darrell Davis, KT4WX received confirmation from ARRL HQ on Monday September 8, that his petition for nomination as WCF Section Manager was the only petition received by the end of the nomination period which was Friday September 5.  He was therefore declared elected and his term will begin on January 1, 2015.  Our current SM, Dee Turner, N4GD declined to run again after serving as SM for the past ten (10) years.


Congratulations to Darrell and a THANK YOU Dee for your service as WCF SM!
