The Marine Corps Marathon (MCM) still needs volunteer amateur
radio operators to help with the 2015 marathon.
The MCM will be run on Sunday, October 25th.
All hands meeting is at 9:00am on 17 Oct.
Whether you enjoy using voice or digital, there is a place
for you to help.
You may register for the MCM now. But, you need to do two
things first and both are necessary:
(1) Register with the Marines.
Go to the Marine Corps web site,
Scroll to "40th Marine Corps Marathon Volunteers" and
click on "Register Now."
(2) Register with your fellow amateur radio operators.
After you fill in what the Marines want, go to:
After you have done that at both web sites, you're done.
Please register now.
Thank you and we hope to see you at the October rehearsals
and at the "All-hands" meeting.
Thanks in advance for supporting the 2015 Marine Corps
==> 2015 JFK RUN IN WASHINGTON COUNTY NEEDS VOLUNTEER RADIO OPS
The "2015 JFK 50 Mile Run" through Washington County on
November 21, 2015, is fast approaching. I know all of you
are anxiously awaiting this event.
The 'JFK Run' begins in Boonsboro, Maryland and goes east on
Alternate US 40 to Turners Gap. At the gap, the runners enter
the Appalachian Trail and proceed south to Weverton, Maryland.
Runners then enter the C&O Canal and go north to Dam Number 4.
Then, they run on county roads to Downsville, Maryland and end
at the Williamsport Middle School.
The course is actually 50.2 miles in length.
Amateur radio operators will provide assistance at various
points along the course. Also, several amateur radio operators
will accompany the race founder and the Operations Manager as
well as two pickup vans and one supply/pickup van.
These people, along with the amateur coordinator, Butch, NI2W,
are the only ones that will work the full duration of the event.
All others will work several shorter hour shifts.
The first group of runners (the slower runners) will start at
5:00 AM. The second more experienced and faster group of
runners will start at 7:00 AM.
The 146.94 - No PL - is the primary repeater and will be used
for all activities. We also have permission to use of the
MADxRA repeater on 147.345 - PL Tone 123.0 as a backup should
the 146.94 repeater fail.
We wish to thank to Tim Beall, N3VNG, for permission to use
the 147.345 repeater as our backup.
Many of you have volunteered to help out again and that is
greatly appreciated by me and the Antietam Radio Association.
However, there are still several spots open. They are as
Net Control - 4:30 AM to 10:00 AM
Net Control - 3:00 PM to 7:00 PM (Close)
Weaverton Aid - 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM
Downsville - 11:30AM to 6:30 PM
If you can help please let me know ASAP. Also if you need
additional info you may contact me at any of the below
numbers or via email.

==> SOUTHERN MARYLAND JOTA 2015
Southern Maryland Boy Scouts JOTA 2015
The JOTA event will take place October 16 thru 18th at the
American Legion Southern Maryland District Youth Camp in
We will be operating on ONLY on October 17, between the
hours of 9:00 AM until 7:00 PM.
We have been informed to expect between 200 to 500
scouts to attend this event.
This means we will need all the help that we can get.
This year, the JOTA set up will be held in Cabin RED.
So far, we have enough equipment. Now, we need operators.
I am asking for help from any amateur radio operators
who would like to participate.
Also, if you would like to put on a demonstration or
give a short lecture on amateur radio, this would really
please the younger scouts.

faces is a dues increase," he said. "Over the past 14 years we
have managed to hold the increase in expenses to just 19
percent, against a US inflation rate of 32 percent over the

Sunspot activity has diminished with 3,000 Km MUFs
hovering around 16 to 19 MHz. at 2100Z. Conditions were
worse, however, during several outbreaks of M-class
X-ray flares around SEP 17-18 and 27-30 which caused
disturbances. An increase in solar wind days, and a few
small CMEs, have kept the ionosphere charged enough
for good evening conditions. Now that the sun is headed
south, fewer afternoons have had significant losses due
to absorption except those days affected by flares.
The BTN continues to meet on 145.33/R (no tone - our
backup) daily at 6:30PM local time and continues to
welcome new amateurs. The availability of an active
directed traffic net of the NTS on VHF is exactly why
the BTN was established, providing a welcoming place
for newcomers to the Amateur Service.
LOCAL MDC RADIOGRAMS AND OTHER MESSAGING
Outlets in each ARES® jurisdiction are needed for daily
Radiogram and Radio-email traffic, particularly for
messaging welcoming new hams to the Amateur Service.
There is also a "real", but smaller, messaging rate coming
in to addressees all over the Section. The NTS takes this
daily traffic voluntarily as a public service and in order to
provide for practice in sustaining our messaging capability.
Please help us find local operators with interest in
providing this service to act as liaisons to our NTS nets
or accept designation as a local Target Station for the
exchange of Radio-email messaging.
Please note that ICS/NIMS FEMA forms such as the
ICS-213, and other special forms, may be attached to
Radio-email as a binary text file for transmission via
WL2K or peer-to-peer transfers. The NTSD Radiogram
service can also handle such forms when the form text
data, including block titles, etc., is inserted into the Text
part of the message; the Preamble, Address, Signature
and OP NOTES completed as done in the standard
MANPOWER - TRAINING
All of our operations, voice, CW, and digital, are in need
of additional supporting manpower. If you can operate
any of these modes, please consider joining our MDC
net fleet. Becoming familiar with methods and practices
now will pay big dividends should an emergency
communications situation arise in your local area or
over a wider region. All of our operators and managers
will be glad to help you learn the skills and find out
about various types of equipment and/or software used.
The NTS/NTSD/Radio-email staff above Section level
draws its manpower from those operators who have
become competent in the service at the entry levels. It
is therefore very valuable and necessary to bring new
operators into our nets and help them learn their skills
in order to provide for the future.
The MDC NTS staff continues to offer to conduct
Echolink training conferences to teach Radiogram
handling and directed traffic net operations, and to
familiarize stations with operations on the NTSD and
MEPN representatives check for Echolink check-ins
starting at 6 PM daily via the WB3GXW-L link node
(or *WASH_DC* conference node backup).
Remember that the MSN provides CW training daily
for newcomers to the mode, or those wishing to
refresh their skills, daily at 7:30 PM on 3563 kHz.
Thanks to all the NTS net controls, DRS and WL2K
stations, liaisons, and traffic handlers for the continuing
effort to keep the nets running and traffic moving. Well
Thank you for your continued support of MDC integrated

==> FINAL COMMENTS FROM YOUR SECTION MANAGER
Well, we dodged a major Hurricane.
While Hurricane Joaquin took a turn to the northeast and missed
making landfall in the US we still felt the impact. This
intense storm traveled across the Atlantic towards Spain before
dissipating, twelve days after becoming a tropical system 750
nautical miles SE of Newfoundland. Unfortunately our
Maryland Atlantic beaches, low-laying inland areas and
lower-Chesapeake Bay areas still suffered significant storm
Our neighbors to the south suffered the most. South Carolina
received epic flooding which then impacted coastal road and rail.
The remarkable thing about this topical rain-maker is that it
was sustained for three days and produced over 20 inches of
rain which poured over central South Carolina and caused severe
Now imagine three days or more if this type of "tropical
vortex" had occurred just a little bit farther north;
off the Maryland coast. The pattern of torrential rain
would dump torrents of rain from the eastern shore to
Cumberland, or even farther west.
So, this is just another reason why we should all be prepared.
Another reason why we need training and volunteers to help.
. . .
Finally, I wish to recognize, appreciate and congratulate the
many ARES/RACES Hams and organizations in the MDC Section for
taking quick action when it appeared that Hurricane Joaquin
was a possible threat to our section. And thank your ARES/RACES
coordinators for their loyalty and support of Emergency
Communications. Thanks to everyone for standing by.
And many thanks to Jim WI3N for running last month's
Echolink Net, to Al KZ3AB for his dedicated support that
brings us the MDC Section News & Jim WB3KAS for getting us
ready for the Hurricane (real or practice) as our SEC.
And to all of you, thanks
73 and remember that I am always ready to serve you.
