Greetings:

I hope everyone has enjoyed the summer weather to this point. Even though band conditions are not the greatest there have been a few openings and 6 meters has been interesting.

I attended the Hudson Division Cabinet meeting on July 28th at Levittown Hall which was well attended by the leaders of the Sections’ clubs. Hudson Division Director Mike Lisenco, N2YBB gave us a very informative presentation on some of the updates going on at the league as well as some issues he has presented. He also had a very spirited question and answer period. All in all it was a very good meeting with a lot of information passed back and forth. We are all looking forward to the next meeting.

Congratulations are in order to Kristi Melfi, KC2TMB, of Babylon, NY daughter of Great South Bay Amateur Radio Club President John Melfi, W2HCB, for being awarded The Norman E. Strohmeier, W2VRS, Memorial Scholarship, from the ARRL.

Ham Radio University 2014 will be upon us before you know it. Chairman for 2014 is former Section Manager Tom Carrubba, KA2D. Tom was Chairman last year and did such a great job, he was unanimously elected again this year.  HRU 2014 will be sponsored by the Great South Bay Amateur Radio Club. There will be new forums as well as VE Session. Save the date, January 5, 2014 at Briarcliff College in Bethpage. For more information, see: http://hamradiouniversity.org/

Comments:
[N2PQJ – Huntington] Four operators have NBEMS capability.  Passed ICS-213 message using MT63 mode from Huntington to Brookhaven via 2 meter repeater.
Had meeting with head of served agency.

[ N2RDB -Nassau County] Report does include prep time, CADRE, Section Meetings and off-hour discussions and meetings, digital work i.e. digital training, website, etc.
Number of members may change subject to roster audit.

[N2TEE -New York City District]
[Bronx – KB2WUS] No comments for the month.

[Kings – KC2NBE] Kings County ARES is prepping for it’s fall season. Upcoming events include: The T.E.A.L. Walk/Run in Prospect Park and Dan’s Fun Run in Gerritsen Beach. Otherwise a quiet month. Also prepping for Hurricane season.

Evan KC2YAY participated in the EC-001 training in Bethpage.

[New York – K2FTC] K2FTC attended the recent Section EC001 training classes in Bethpage.

County net continues to go well – the 7 July net had our best turn out so far with 14 stations checking in.

[Queens – N1JSP] N1JSP along with other members of NYC District ARES participated in the section wide EC 001 training in Nassau County. N2UJG participate in an event with Richmond County ARES.

[Richmond – N2TEE] We picked up a new maritime mobile public service event named “Boat Ride for God’s Exceptional Children” which took place on a Staten Island Ferry. As a new venue, we wanted ARES to be well represented amongst all the other volunteer groups which participated. With support coming in from every county, it had the feel of a citywide event.

Accounting for onshore and offshore logistics were a challenge, yet the team came well prepared and was ready for anything. The children and radio operators had a blast while the event organizers wondered aloud how they had gotten along without ARES the past few years.

Many thanks to Janno W2KMA for managing the event, Glen KD2BXM for his stellar work as net control, and Tommy KF2IC for generating this event lead through his Masonic Lodge.

[District – N2TEE] Would like to congratulate all the members citywide who passed the EC-001 course this month in Nassau county. Looking forward to seeing many of you this September in Brooklyn for the local training class and exam session.

Please check the NOAA SKYWARN website for upcoming seminars in the area. My SKYWARN training had become a bit stale, so I thought it was time for a refresher. A car-load of us from Richmond county will be in attendance for the one scheduled in Bergen county this week. Hope to see some other folks from the section there as well.

[KC2LSB Sec]
I would like to thank and congratulate all those that attended the EC-001 class on July 20/21 at Nassau OEM.  I would also like to thank Nassau OEM for providing us with use of their great facilities and for feeding us breakfast and lunch both days.  Thank You Gentlemen!  I would also like to thank the other instructors and field examiners that taught and/or helped proctor the examinations.  Charlie, WA2GUG, Jimmy, KC2LSB, Gary, KB2BSL and Dave AK1NS all helped out in one or both capacities.  And thanks to Charlie for coordinating both the session with the League and the use of the facilities.  We had a 100% pass rate this time around!  Good job everybody!

If you missed the class in July for some reason and are feeling bummed out about it, fear not!  On Saturday Sept. 7 and Sunday Sept. 8 we are doing it all again at the Methodist Hospital in Brooklyn.  Details can be found on the NYC District web page (www.aresnyc.org) or on the KCRA (kc2ra.org) web site as well. If you would like to register please send a note to me and/or Charlie (wa2gug) at our calls at the League and we will sign you up.  Remember that this is the League’s course and as such in order to get certification you must meet their requirements of having passed FEMA IC-100 and IC-700 and also pass their course assessment test.  They charge a $15.00 fee for the exam.  If you have already taken an older incarnation of the EC-001 class, this is a much better course and we would recommend that you sit in on the class again.  If you are just sitting in and will not be taking the test the class is FREE!  If you are going to take the test, we suggest that you buy the league’s book and start studying now.  Even though we teach for 2 days on this, we are just skimming the high points.  If you truly want to get anything out of this course you need the book.  It can be had online at the league site.

The same group that is teaching the EC-001 class has also been teaching and testing the Technician license class.  At least 3 sessions have been taught in the last year, all with great success.  If you know somebody that would like to become a HAM this is a great class.  The details are on the KCRA website.  The class includes a 7-week online class followed by a 2 day instructor led class after which we administer the test.  We are currently working on getting the next session together at Nassau OEM on the 5th and 6th of October.  Stay tuned for more details.
