Assistant Section Manager (ASM) Craig England – KF2X email@example.com
I was born in Hutchinson, Kansas in August of 1947. Since that time, I have lived in 17 states. I spent four years in the Navy as a Seabee, with two tours of duty in South Vietnam and one in the Antarctic. I retired in 2007 after 38 years as an electronic field service tech, working in the banking industry. I came to the Pee Dee region Of South Carolina in March of 1986. I am an American by birth and a South Carolinian by choice. I became interested in amateur radio in grammar school but partly due to my family moving regularly and my short term interest, I was 31 years old before I became licensed. I received my novice license in Vestal, NY in November of 1978 (KA2HDQ). I passed my extra (KF2X) at the FCC field office in Buffalo, NY in June of 1979. My main interest is DX and IOTA chasing. I have never made it to the top of the Honor Roll. I always seem to miss one.

Public Information Coordinator (PIC) – Tammy Livingston N4TAL N4TAL@att.net
Tammy became a ham radio operator in 2006. She quickly found that working events was a perfect fit for her community service nature. Her first event was the MS150 and was the start of an ongoing relationship between Tammy and the organizations that are served by Amateur Radio. Since that initial event, she has worked countless hours organizing hams and working events all over the state of SC. She promotes the hobby at every opportunity and is always looking for a chance to share information about her club and the hobby. Tammy currently serves as the Event Coordinator for the Columbia Amateur Radio Club. She is also studying for her last upgrade, the Extra class license!
