This program started in 2007. Hams of the Year are selected from the MARA membership by their piers. It is a ham operator that goes far and beyond to promote the hobby, support the club and its activities and is the persona of a good ham operator. In the Oct-Nov time frame, nominations are submitted to the HOY committee and the nominee with the most recommendations is selected. If a tie, the board will vote based on their accomplishments. Below are listed those hams selected from 2007 to present. Pictures are available on the club Facebook page under albums.
