John Ash Chapman Shield 2021
We were nominated for and were awarded the John Ash Chapman Shield. We are very proud to have been awarded this and would like to thank everyone for their support and nominations. A formal announcement of this award will be make at this years Annual General Meeting of the IRTS due to take place on Saturday 24 April.
The Shield is awarded to an individual, group or club that undertakes significant promotion of Amateur Radio to the public. This Shield was sponsored by North Cork Radio Group in memory of their member and good friend John Ash Chapman, EI5JN.
John was an enthusiastic promoter of Amateur Radio to the public in a fun and friendly manner and he believed that these qualities should be to the forefront of the modern amateur spirit. In particular he was very supportive of activations at heritage locations such as castles, lighthouses, Geoparks, islands and places of historical distinction.
