W7IDO Mike McLaughlin
At the VOI 09/11/2019 club meeting, W7IDO Mike McLaughlin had the winning raffle ticket for the YAESU FT-70DR/DE 5 watt radio, along with several useful attachments. The radio was donated to the club by a generous member who remains anonymous. The club sold just shy of 400 raffle tickets over the course of a few months. 100 of the 400 tickets were bought by a generous (and anonymous) club member to be used as prizes in the regular club raffle drawing. The $400 was added to VOI’s fund designated for mountain top repeater sites. The raffle event was a lot of fun for the club – many thanks to the donor and all of those who bought tickets. Congratulations, Mike!
