Hi guys and gals of the Oklahoma section! Well, it was a slow summer. Ham Holiday was a success and the banquet was great. Valerie Hotzfeld gave a wonderful talk about her ham radio journey, including her time in Puerto Rico during hurricane relief. Just got back from Ardmore and Hamarama. Was good to see all the folks from the old home town...and Enid Hamfest is this weekend (Nov. 3rd). I'll be there ready to answer any questions and take any renewals. \ As of the first part of September, I have power to the shop and have been back on the air! Hope to run into some of you on the bands. The holidays are fast approaching and hopefully your club is going to have a "Talk to Santa by Radio" event. Those clubs that have done it all had great fun as well as demonstrated ham radio in a very positive light. There are some new things happening at HQ these days. The OO program is becoming the Volunteer Monitoring (VM) program. Great name, huh....NOT! Not sure exactly when the roll out will be as we are waiting on the FCC to sign the MOU. Also, ARES is undergoing a major overhaul. There will be more training requirements and other details. Keep an eye out on the league website for more details on both of these programs as they become available. We are in need of a new Section Traffic Manager. Chris has had to bow out due to family issues. We appreciate his stepping up to the plate when he did. We wish him all the best. I you are interested in this appointment, drop me an email. That's all for now....if you are having an event, let me know so we can get it posted here, 73's for now Kevin O'Dell, N0IRW Oklahoma Section Manager
