This award is to be presented by the Saskatoon Amateur Radio Club on a yearly basis, (if warranted), in honour of Dave Glass (VE5MG), who became a silent key in 1988.

Dave was a true ham. Always helpful, home brew was his approach to ham radio equipment or modifying to make it work properly. From tubes to semiconductors, his workmanship and designs were second to none as many older hams can attest to. He was self-taught, held no degree but was sought after for much advise and help. He was a True Elmer to all. Even to this day a satellite is still flying with his one-of-a-kind power supply transformer that a high profile commercial aerospace company could not duplicate.

The Dave Glass award nominees should have some of the following attributes that really make amateur radio a technical fun hobby:

This award trophy will have a keeper plaque that the individual will retain.  This award can only be awarded once to an individual and shall be open to all qualifying hams in Saskatchewan.

This award trophy will have a keeper plaque that the individual will retain but the larger trophy will be returned or retained by the Saskatoon Amateur Radio Club for the next presentation. This award can only be awarded once to an individual and shall be open to all qualifying hams in Saskatchewan. The award will be presented at either a S.A.R.L Ham Fest or at a North American Field-day event. Thus the nominations shall be in by June 1st of any year, and sent to VE5AA or VE5KRB by e-mail or mail. Check the Saskatoon Amateur Radio Club Inc. web site.
