“The Athens Daily Review reports Loretta Smith KG5QCH has achieved her amateur radio license at the age of 91
The newspaper says: Loretta Smith, age 91, resident of Cedarview Place assisted living, has joined the newest class of certified ham radio operators in Texas.
Inspired by Pastor George Yarger W5BRG of Harbor Baptist Church in Payne Springs, Loretta decided to pursue her ham radio license.
Yarger spoke of his experience serving communities in times of disaster with his knowledge of ham radio communication, and Smith knew she could provide the same help in Gun Barrel City, if she was certified.
Smith worked with the activity director at Cedarview Place to understand the process of becoming certified, and three other residents decided to join Smith in the course.”
