Two VK amateurs were recognised last weekend at the world's largest Hamvention in Dayton, Ohio.

The late Michael Owen VK3KI was one of 8 inductees into CQ Magazine's Hall of Fame. Michael was a long-time WIA President and IARU Region 3 Chairman. As the former he presided over changes including the introduction of Foundation Licensing and WIA restructuring.

Concurrently with the Hamvention QRP operators were holding their annual 'Four Days in May'. A highlight was the induction of Drew Diamond VK3XU (pictured) into the QRP Hall of Fame. Drew is just the second VK amateur ever to be admitted and is well-known for his long-term encouragement of homebrew construction through books and articles, mostly in the WIA's Amateur Radio magazine.
