This will be my last Newsletter to you as Section Manager. Come
January 1, 2013, I will take on the duties of Hudson Division
I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to the NLI
membership. You have all been extremely supportive and so very kind to
me during my tenure as Section Manager. I have thoroughly enjoyed the
past four years, and I look forward to working with you, as well as the
entire Division, in my new role.
The position of Director is very different than that of Section
Manager. Your input will be crucial to me as I sit on the ARRL Board
of Directors helping to determine League policy. I need to hear from
you, and I welcome your comments whatever they may be. The ARRL is OUR
organization – we are all equal members, and we need to work together to
insure amateur radio’s future. As always, my contact information is:
firstname.lastname@example.org and/or 917-865-3538.
I look forward to seeing you at club meetings, events, cabinet
meetings, and the general membership meetings that we will be having in
the upcoming months, something that, to my knowledge, we have never had
I am pleased to announce that Jim Mezey W2KFV will succeed me as the
new Section Manager for NLI. Jim has been my number 1 for the past
four years, serving as the NLI ARES Section Emergency Coordinator.
Prior to that, he was the Nassau County ARES District Emergency
Coordinator. Jim has always shown himself to be a great leader who
puts everything in its proper perspective and makes decisions with
great clarity. He will be a great Section Manager and will continue to
be a tremendous asset to the Section. I wish him the best of luck in
his new position and ask that you extend to him the same courtesy you
have consistently shown to me.
In closing, may I wish you all the very best of the Season, and for a
happy and healthy New Year.
See you at HRU!

I’ve been asked to make two announcements regarding HRU:
First, I received this request from Phil Lewis N2MUN, NLI ACC and HRU
Committee Member. He has asked me to inform you that each
club/organization that would like to support an information table at
HRU2013 will be required to bring a rectangular table this year
(maximum two tables per club).
In order to support this activity you MUST e-mail Phil by December 31st
to email@example.com The committee will be putting together a floor
matrixfor all organizations this year.
Please report to him the day of the event for your table location.

Second, Lew Malchik N2RQ has once again been asked to reprise the youth
forum at HRU 2013, on January 6, 2013. The format of the forum is
fashioned after the very successful program that Carole Perry has been
doing at the Dayton Hamvention.
Lew is looking for young operators in our area to make brief
presentations about their interests and activity in ham radio.
Recommendations and contact info should be sent to him at

Special Event Station W2T — The Nikola Tesla Memorial Event – is
scheduled for the weekend of January 11-13 of 2013 to mark the January
7, 1943 passing of Nikola Tesla.
Control operators will be physically positioned at various sites having
to do with Tesla’s life and using Ham Radio Deluxe to “wirelessly”
remote control the main station(s) located on Long Island, NY and
Manhattan. The event organizers are hoping for venues such as Tesla’s
room in The New Yorker Hotel as well as being somewhere onsite at his
labs at Wardenclyffe Towers and perhaps a few other Tesla-related areas
as well. This will be a very unique event.
Certificates will be issued for contacts on 80-10M with endorsements
for each of the sites. They are in the design process now, but they
will be frame-able, approximately 9 X 12 certificates. The organizers
hope that they will be able to garner enough publicity to turn this
into a truly international event. The stations thus far planned for
being remote-controlled from the Tesla Memorial sites have all earned
DXCC in the past and should be well capable of reaching all areas of
the world if propagation and the gods of the troposphere smile upon
To honor Tesla’s penchant and passion for wireless operations this will
be one of the very few ham radio events that will also have special
endorsements for contacts via Echolink, IRLP and D-STAR. (Obviously
such contacts cannot count for unassisted radio-only awards from third
The event organizers are hoping that this event will prove to be worthy
of Nikola Tesla’s vision and a nice tribute to his memory and his
too-often overlooked contributions to Radio and so many, many other
fields. They are presently assembling a team of control operators as
well as choosing the stations which will be under wireless — Ham Radio
Deluxe — control. They are also contacting various venues and trying to
arrange enough PR in time for this event that the word will get out.
Neil Shapiro is running the event and he may be contacted at
W2NLS@arrrl.net. He would love to hear from anyone interested and any
who might have ideas to contribute.

THERE IS SO MUCH GOING ON IN THE SECTION THAT NEVER GETS THE PUBLICITY
IT NEEDS. DO YOU HAVE A CLUB EVENT THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO PUBLICIZE?

Again, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the particulars.

Things have been very busy here in NYC District ARES. November started
off with the wrapping up of Sandy activation the the ARC/GNY EOC.
nearly a week of operation, we were finally able to stand down on
The following weekend, November 10, 11 and 12, brought a request from
the ARC to assist in providing comms to ERVs being dispatched into the
hardest hit areas of south Queens and Brooklyn to provide feeding for
victims of Sandy. As Kings County EC Jojo Gonzalez, KC2NBE stated:
Kings County was re-activated by the Red Cross for Hurricane Sandy
Disaster Relief Operations. Members were deployed to several
Red Cross EOC, Floyd Bennett Field and the Aqueduct. Kings County ARES
members also assisted in unloading water from delivery trailers to ERV
loading areas as well as providing back up communications between the
ERVs and the ARC ERV Coordinator during their delivery runs into Far
Rockaway. KC ARES Operators who responded to the activation include:
NY2K, WA2JNF, K2ARN, KD2BQN, KC2YAY, W2/8R1B and KC2NBE. KC2YAY went
above and beyond the call staying till his ERV finished its delivery
run well after Red Cross Operations at the Aqueduct had shut down for
the night. KC2YAY was also responsible for being able to divert the
convoy away from a fire incident that led to a street closure which
resulted in a near flawless run of a time sensitive food delivery run.
In this activation, Kings County ARES members used $30,000 worth of
equipment. Members from all counties participated in this long
activation and all performed above and beyond.
The month finished up with the annual Turkey Trot in Brooklyn’s
Prospect Park on Thanksgiving morning. A spectacular day for a
