JANUARY ARES REPORTS DUE

Dear Fellow Hams,

The monthly ARES reports for January will soon be due.

I want to thank those ECs/AECs/ADECs who have already submitted their reports. To facilitate a more efficient method to compile the monthly reports, please adhere to the following schedule:

EC/AEC/ADEC  due date = 7:00pm ET on Monday Feb 6th

DEC          due date = 7:00pm ET on Tuesday Feb 7th

ASEC         due date = 7:00pm ET on Wednesday Feb 8th

KYHAM        due date = 7:00pm ET on Thursday Feb 9th

SEC          due date = 7:00pm ET on Friday Feb 10th

The above schedule will allow each leadership level to review data submitted before having to submit their own report. Your cooperation and timeliness is appreciated. Reports are available at: http://www.kyham.net/emcomm/reports.html.

Remember, a report should be submitted, even if you have no specific information to report.

Information on how to submit a report is available at: http://www.kyham.net/emcomm/KY_ARES_Reporting_Instructions.pdf

Please feel free to contact me. I’m always happy to help.image

HAPPY THANKSGIVING MESSAGE FROM SM Alan KY1O

KENTUCKY SECTION NEWS – November 23, 2015
I send everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving and I hope you and your family/friends enjoy the holiday and get to spend some quality time together.
I am now back in KY after what was supposed to only be a 3-month temporary assignment on the US Naval Submarine Base New London in Groton, CT, which turned into an 8-month one. It was a lot of fun though getting an opportunity to spend that time traveling around sightseeing in New England and meeting many hams while up there in the area. At least my ONE call sign fit in up there I guess. LOL I will get to enjoy some time here with family and friends through New Years and get some projects I want to accomplish underway and maybe a few completed before I head out on my next safety consulting assignment.
Many are now gearing up for the National Parks On The Air 2016 Event and it sounds like it is going to be a lot of fun activating and operating from and with the various stations that will be set up in all the park locations around the USA during the year long Centennial celebration.
WRC-15 opened up more frequency allocation worldwide on the 60 meter band recently and as soon as the FCC completes their rules revision we will see some changes here in the US and be able to work more countries on that band. Please be very mindful of power limitations and other restrictions when operating on 60 meters.
There are still some volunteer opportunities available within the ARRL Kentucky Section, so visit this web site to see if you may be interested in serving in one of them soon: http://kyham.net/arrl/?page_id=277
If you have amateur radio news to share with others please send it to: ARRL Kentucky Section Public Information Coordinator Greg Lamb, W0QI at w0qi@arrl.net
If you want to know about Amateur Radio Emergency Services in the ARRL Kentucky Section please contact: Section Emergency Coordinator Cecil Dennis, K4TCD at k4tcd@arrl.net
If you need information about interference or have a complaint about inappropriate or illegal amateur operations please contact: ARRL Kentucky Section Official Observer Coordinator Bill Hilyerd, K4LRX at k4lrx@arrl.net
If you are needing some technical assistance with amateur radio or related information you can contact: ARRL Kentucky Section Technical Coordinator Chuck Milam, N9KY at n9ky@arrl.net
The four volunteers listed above are just a few of the many volunteers available in the ARRL Kentucky Section ready to assist you as ARRL Members, so take advantage of their services when needed.
Reminder: ARRL Annual Dues go up by $10 per year starting in 2016, so you may want to renew before the end of the year to take advantage of savings on your membership soon.
Again… Happy Thanksgiving… Take care for now & 73,
Alan, KY1O KY Section Manager
