The Big Island Amateur Radio Club (BIARC) continues to build and “streamline” its new email listserve.  According to coordinator Les Hittner (K0BAD), “The main advantage of using such a listserve is that you do not have to individually maintain a list of club-member email addresses in order to enter into important conversations related to club operations.”  Les adds that “The listserve provides a secure means of sending club email.”  To join the new listserve, please contact Les at lhittner@hbci.com.


For the latest Amateur/Ham Radio news and events, please check the blog sidebars and links.  These news feeds are updated daily and weekly.  HQ ARRL news releases are posted in the right hand sidebar.  Views expressed in this news summary are those of the reporters and correspondents unless otherwise stated.

Please send your Hawaii Island Amateur Radio news items to kh6jrm@arrl.net at least two weeks prior to your event so I can notify our local print and broadcast media in a timely manner.
