Happy New Year….

Ham Radio University 2014 and the ARRL NYC/ Long Island Convention was held on January 5th  at Briarcliff College in Bethpage and I have to say we had a blast……………… Many of the Section clubs had tables and advertised what their clubs are about. The forums were very interesting and very well attended.  Congratulations to Chairman Tom Carrubba, KA2D and his staff for putting on such a great event. Thanks to Gary, KB2BSL and the HRU 2014 AV Crew. Here is a link to display the uploaded videos;


Section Traffic Manager Jim Kettyle, KC2LEB and Assistant Section Manager –Digital  Bob Meyers, K2TV are looking for some help in the digital traffic handling part of the Sections National Traffic System. If you have some interest and can spend a few moments each week, please contact them at  KC2LEB@arrl.net or K2TV@arrl.net

I would like to thank all the NTS Traffic managers, Net Control operators and traffic stations that took part in the NTS programs this past year. Please keep up the good work.

Congratulations and best of everything to incoming President Bob Biamonte, WB2OMW who has a tough act to follow.

The ARRL celebrates their 100th year with Centennial Celebration and Events see the following for a list and schedule. Check out the Centennial QSQ Party.


From Hudson Division Director Mike Lisenco, N2YBB:

As you know, the ARRL is celebrating our 100th birthday in 2014, and
there will be a number of special events to commemorate it.

Les Kalmus W2LK is directing the first W1AW/2 special event in New
York.  This call will be used here from January 22nd to the 28th as
part of the ARRL Centennial Celebration.  W1AW will be used as a
portable callsign in each of the 50 states (as well as some of the
territories) as part of a special Worked All States Award for 2014

Les can still use some operators.  If you would like to participate
please contact Les ASAP at w2lk@arrl.net.  He needs to get the schedule
to ARRL HQ first thing next week!

From the ARRL:

ARLX013 ARRL Granted Use of W100AW for League’s Centennial

Special Bulletin 13  ARLX013
From ARRL Headquarters
Newington CT  December 5, 2013
To all radio amateurs

ARLX013 ARRL Granted Use of W100AW for League’s Centennial

The FCC has authorized the Maxim Memorial Station W1AW to also use
the call sign W100AW during 2014, the ARRL’s centennial year.
Contacts made from the Maxim Memorial Station in Newington, from
regional Centennial conventions, and during the IARU HF Championship
will use W100AW, with portable designators as appropriate. The “W1AW
WAS” operations throughout 2014 from each of the 50 states will use
W1AW, not W100AW.

Bulletins and code practice transmissions during 2014 also will
still use W1AW. Contacts with W100AW will be worth 100 points in the
ARRL Centennial QSO Party. To help kick off the ARRL Centennial,
special W100AW activity will begin at 0500 UTC on January 1, 2014
(midnight in Newington), and will include participation in ARRL’s
Straight Key Night; one CW station will use Hiram Percy Maxim’s
straight key. Activity will continue throughout New Year’s Day.




That’s all for now, get on the air and enjoy our great hobby and by all means….Keep those batteries charged.
