ARRL Brass Pounder League and Public Service Honor Roll
County Proclamation Acknowledges
Amateur Radio's Disaster Communicators:
The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors issued a proclamation at their June 28, 2016, meeting declaring "Amateur Radio Month in Los Angeles County" to recognize the many ham operators throughout the County who voluntarily provide disaster amateur radio communication. This proclamation was issued to the ARRL on behalf of all disaster amateur radio operators whether at the County, City, ARRL, or special group level--and regardless of whether ARRL members or not. ARRL LAX Section Manager Diana Feinberg, AI6DF, accepted the proclamation at the Supervisors' meeting alongside ARRL Southwestern Division Vice Director Marty Woll, N6VI, and LAX Section NTS Manager Kate Hutton, K6HTN. Please see the photos of this beautiful proclamation....and thank you for your ongoing public service providing emergency communication throughout Los Angeles County.
VHF Traffic Net
The ARRL Los Angeles Section NTS has a VHF/UHF phone traffic net Tuesdays and Thursdays at 2030 local time on the PAPA repeater system. Volunteers are needed as net control stations. All ARES members -- and especially current ARES net control stations -- are encouraged to participate. For more information, see David N6HD's posting on the Yahoo user group. The net schedule and script for net control stations are available here.
