Peter Young VK3MV receives Industry Recognition

On Tuesday evening at the annual gala dinner of the Australian Radio Communications Industry Association held at the Melbourne Telstra Dome in front of over 500 people, Peter Young VK3MV, a WIA Director, was awarded the Jonathon Livingstone Seagull Award and Perpetual Trophy in recognition of his contribution to the radio industry in Australia.

The concept of the Jonathon Livingstone Seagull award is to recognise someone who has learned more and risen above what would normally be expected of them in their usual role in the Industry, and then contributed back to the industry in a way that doesn’t necessarily relate to their own direct benefit. This could be through additional training, encouragement of other people to benefit themselves, a contribution that is to the benefit of the community, either as a whole in the context of the radio industry, or perhaps within their own local community in smaller areas.

The WIA congratulates Peter on this industry recognition, and again acknowledges his contribution to the Australian Amateur Radio community in his capacity as a Director on the WIA Board.

A more detailed report will be featured in a future edition of Amateur Radio magazine.
