This is a follow up of an original post submitted by Stacy Holbrook (KH6OWL).  The full, unedited article was published on 15 March 2017.

The display arranged by Jim Andrews (KH6HTV), Alan Maenchen (KH6TU/AD6E), and ARRL Pacific Section Manager Joe Speroni (AH0A) was well received by those attending the Engineering Day event at the Queen Kaahumanu Center on Maui.

Stacy outlines the main attraction of the exhibit:

“The main attention-getter was an operating display of Andrews’ 70-centimeter high-definition Amateur Radio digital TV system. Andrews and Maenchen also had a 100 W HF radio on the table as an introduction to discuss Amateur Radio’s world-wide communication capabilities. ARRL Pacific Section Manager Joe Speroni, AH0A, supplied an ARRL banner for a backdrop and ARRL literature to distribute.”

Thanks to Jim, Alan, and Joe for an excellent public relations event
