Listed above are some of the articles and news stories covered in the 03 November 2016 issue of the “ARRL Letter.”  Especially interesting is the coverage of the Hawaii “Grid Madness” event.

Just a quick reminder for Hawaii Island radio amateurs.  The Big Island Amateur Radio Club will meet this Saturday, 05 November 2016, 0800 hrs HST, at the IHOP Restaurant in Hilo’s Prince Kuhio Plaza.  Lots of good fellowship and tasty food.

Please send your newsworthy items to at least two weeks before your event so I can notify local print and broadcast media.
