of Fame inductees. The CQ Amateur Radio Hall  of  Fame  was  established  in
January 2001 to  recognize  individuals  -  radio  amateurs  or  not  -  who
significantly affected the  course  of  Amateur  Radio,  as  well  as  radio
amateurs who have made significant contributions either  to  amateur  radio,
to their professional careers or  to  some  other  aspect  of  life  on  our
planet. This year's inductees are: Nate Brightman (K6OSC), Robert  Schmieder
(KK6EK), E. King Stodola (W2AXO, SK), Bob Gunderson (W2JIO, SK),  Dave  Bell
(W6AQ), Cardinal Roger Mahony, Archbishop Emeritus of Los  Angeles  (W6QYI),

The CQ Contest Hall of Fame (established in 1986) and  the  CQ  DX  Hall  of
Fame (established in 1967) honour those  amateurs  who  not  only  excel  in
personal performance in these major areas of amateur  radio,  but  who  also
"give back" to the hobby in outstanding ways. This year's  inductee  to  the
