SCV Section Members;
It’s with great excitement and enthusiasm I introduce and pass the virtual baton to our new Santa Clara Valley Section Manager Brandon Bianchi, NI6C.
Originally licensed in April 1995 as KE6THG, he upgraded to General in 2006 (taking the call N6OOB) and Extra in 2007 when he changed to his current call of NI6C. He is also licensed in Switzerland as HB9EGB.
Brandon has been an active member of numerous amateur radio communities over the past 15 years and grew up around amateur radio. His father Jim Bianchi, W6DIA and sister Brittany Newell, KG6GIX are also active amateur operators.
Most recently he has been serving in the role of Assistant Section Manager for the Santa Clara Valley (SCV) over the past term. Brandon has also held various other positions for clubs and groups throughout the state including net control operator, publications editor and board member. He is a VE and enjoys DXing and emergency communications.
When not involved in amateur radio, he works as a Senior Network Engineer and enjoys scuba and spending time with his wife and daughter.
Be sure to give a huge Thank you to Brandon for stepping up to the challenge of this role for our section. We are very lucky to have him and look forward to his leadership.
