ARRL Emergency Communications News Letter

One of the great benefits of ARRL membership is the ability to receive  several informative newsletters, which cover a broad spectrum of interests, ranging from DX to emergency communications.

The current edition of Rick Palm’s (K1CE)  “E-Newsletter”  is one of the better publications detailing the work of ARES (Amateur Radio Emergency Service) clubs in providing communications support to federal, state, and local agencies.

You can find the current edition at http://www.arrl.org/FandES/field/ares-el/?issue=2016-09-21.

Here are some of the topics discussed in the 21 September 2016 edition:

September is National Preparedness Month.

Spotlight:  Georgia Mountains’ District ARES trains on public event communications support.

Western Washington Section Manager comments on June’s “Cascadia Rising” exercise.  See the September 2016 issue of “QST” for complete details.

Tech Tips:  The North County’s Solar Powered APRS Digipeaters.

Letters:  12 hour shifts.

Get on board the simplex train!

The Aulani Hui Amateur Radio Repeater Club’s “Hawaiian Grid Madness” Contest.  An excellent article about a Hawaii Island-based FM simplex contest.

You can subscribe to this excellent publication by going to the ARRL membership site.

Another one of my favorite ARRL Newsletter subscriptions is the propagation report from Thad Cooke (K7RA).

Please send your Hawaii Island amateur radio activities and events to kh6jrm@arrl.net.
