ARRL ARES E-Letter editor Rick Palm (K1CE) has wrapped up an exciting, challenging year for ARES with this closing news letter for 2016.

Here are the main topics, ARES briefs, and assorted links as of 21 December 2016:

ARES Briefs, Links

Radio Amateurs Assisting in Wake of Indonesian Earthquake (12/9/16); Emergency Communication Exercise Uses “Hamsphere®” to Introduce Youth to Virtual Ham Radio (12/7/16); Amateur Radio Volunteers Providing Shelter Communication Support in Tennessee (11/30/16); Tennessee ARES on Standby in Wildfire Emergency, Local Amateur Radio Volunteers Assisting (11/29/16); Hurricane Watch Net Stands Down after Hurricane Otto Makes Landfall in Nicaragua (11/25/16)”

The article about a “Go-Box” station is particularly good, especially for those radio amateurs involved in the ARES, RACES, SATERN (Salvation Army), and MARS (Military Affiliate Radio Station) programs. Please consider building a simple, portable radio system in your spare time. You never know when an emergency will strike your community.

Please send your newsworthy Hawaii Island Amateur Radio events to at least two weeks prior to your program.  This will give me time to notify our local print and broadcast media.
