Big Island ARRL News, 01 January 2018, 1745 UTC, Post #412.

Here are some of the upcoming events that may interest radio amateurs on Hawaii Island:

Community Emergency Response Team Training (CERT).

The current edition of the Big Island Amateur Radio Club Newsletter has a full page on this important educational opportunity.  According to the BIARC Newsletter article, CERT Training “provides you with knowledge and skills to prepare for and properly respond to an emergency impacting yourself, your family, and your community.”  The CERT Training Course will be offered in East Hawaii at the Aupuni Conference Room on these Saturdays:

20 January, 27 January, 03 February, and 10 February 2018.  Classes will run between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. HST. For more information,visit https://www.citizencorps.gov/gov.

Big Island of Hawaii International Swap Meet/Hamfest.

This annual event will be held on Saturday, 13 January 2017, at the Waimea Community Center in Kamuela. The event, sponsored by the Kohala Hamakua Radio Club, will feature a ham radio equipment swap meet, guest speakers, and a VE testing session for amateur radio licenses.  Doors open to the public at 0930 HST, with VE testing scheduled for 1300 HST.  For details, contact Steve Milner (WH6N)–wh6n@arrl.net.

HRN 377 is one of the more interesting and controversial videocasts published by HamRadioNow.  In this podcast, Gary Pearce (KN4AQ) and Dan Romanchik (KB6NU) discuss the “CQ Magazne” report on changes to ARRL governing documents.  The ARRL has proposed a major revision in the Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws with recommendations on how the ARRL Board removes a member and a director.  That meeting is set for this month at ARRL Headquarters.  Gary and Dan also discuss the future  of HamRadioNow.
