Here are the top Amateur/Ham Radio news stories compiled by HQ ARRL, Newington, CT, 06111.  Views expressed in this news summary are those of the reporters and correspondents.  At the end of the ARRL News Report, I’ll have a few items for Hawaii Island radio amateurs.

Jim Sugg (AH6AE) needs a “patient” radio amateur “to demo how ham radio works at the upcoming emergency preparedness fair in Waimea (Hawaii Island)…on Saturday, August 25, 2018, from 8am-12pm.”  The event will be held at the Mana Christian Ohana Hall near the Kahilu Theatre.  The event is free and open to the public.  If you’d like to help, call Jim at 9808) 747-4500 (mobile).
