WB6HJJ - Fontana High School (FOHI) Amateur Radio Club Station

                     

General Information

Here is some information related to the Fontana High School (FOHI) Amateur Radio Club back in 1975-1976. I (David Collingham) graduated in 1976 from FOHI and was involved in the Communication Lab and a member of the WB6HJJ club station. FOHI is located in Fontana, California - 65 miles east of Los Angeles in southern California. Here are some nice photos of the station's lab, radios and morse code training area:

Our radio club sponsor and ham radio mentor back then was Mr. Louis P. Malory. We never realized the lasting impression and positive impact he would have on our lives. What a wonderful asset he was and still is to his students. Malory's service as an educator is praised by his students.

 

Here are some photos of Louis & Harrell (Jane) Malory, Doug Bryan (student) and David (K3LP -Student) on March 16, 2014:

About Louis P. Mallory (WA6DVK)

A distinguished teacher and skilled mentor, Louis Malory has made extraordinary contributions in the development of his high school students and students of all ages that committed the time to participate and make an investment in them selves. Some of his accomplishments include establishing the Communications Technology Lab in 1974 and obtaining necessary VEA - Federal Funds for Unique Programs that paved the way for about 800 different students to attend and approximately 400 to complete the program over the next 8 years. During this time, an estimated 275 students collectively received about 500 Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Amateur Radio and Commercial Radiotelephone Broadcast Licenses.

My good friends in the radio club back in 1973-1976 were Steve Cook (ex-WB6IFG, Now WG7K), John Fedorka (WN6KTD) and Doug Bryant (WA6CUC). Here are some of my (David) novice rookie photos.

 

Mr. George Chero was our Electronics instructor and was also directly responsible for me (David) going to DeVry Institute of Technology after high school. Mr. Chero had the regional DeVry representative make a presentation in our electronics class where I signed up for a home demonstration. I was then enrolled to start at the DeVry Institute of Technology located in Phoenix, Arizona at the end of June 1976. Mr. George Chero is still working (as of February 2006) at FOHI and can be reached at (909) 357-5500, Ext. 6764.
