Director Woolweaver announces the appointment of Marvin (“Trevor”) Matherne as the new Assistant Director for Special Interest Groups. Several new SIGs have been announced in 2012 and Trevor will be working with Director Woolweaver to insure that all of the Special Interest Groups have a point person to help promote their efforts within the Division.
A Louisiana native, Trevor noted that sometime around 1969 his uncle (KB5BB) demonstrated a phone patch in his car, introducing Trevor to the world of radio. Thus a “bucket list” entry made its way into the recesses of his head. Fast forward 35 years and Trevor is now in Dallas and his interest was rekindled when KC5ZMY, Marina Calverley, challenged him to get his technician license in 2007, renewing his interest in amateur radio.
Trevor is active locally with Dallas RACES, enjoys storm chasing, and local chatter with friends on 10 meters, 2 meters and 70 cm. He only regrets it took nearly four decades to get his license. Trevor adds that he, “…appreciates the opportunity to serve the League and Division Members.”
