April 2014 South Carolina Section Manager’s Report.

Greetings to all Amateur Radio Operators.  This is Marc, N4UFP with the April 2014 South Carolina Section Manager’s Report.  Please remember that the SC Section website can be found at: www.arrl-sc.org/  where my full SM report will be listed as well as up-to-the-date information on Amateur Radio in South Carolina.

We are now approximately 4 weeks away from Field Day 2014, which will take place this year on 28 – 29 June.  I encourage all of you to participate, even if it is just for a short time.  If you haven’t downloaded them already, the 2014 Field Day rules can be found at:

http://www.arrl.org/field-day

As in years past, Dr. Jim Boehner, N2ZZ, Roanoke Division Vice Director and I will be visiting Field Day sites, so let us know what your group is doing for Field Day so we can put you on our itineraries.

The week of 16 July, W1AW will be operating portable from SC for a second time. I have exchanged e-mails with Don, W4OC is coordinating the operation, and he indicated that it is possible that additional operators will be needed. Operators need to have contesting experience and proficiency with N1MM, Writelog, WinTest, etc so that log files can be provided to Don for forwarding to ARRL HQ. Operators must also agree to follow all of the operating guidelines that have developed during this process to date. The W1AW/X operations have generated tremendous pileups on the bands and volunteering to operate may not be for everyone. If there are clubs or individual amateurs who are interested, they should contact Don directly via e-mail to see if additional operators are needed at w4oc@aol.com

No monthly report would be complete without the traffic report, which appears below. Thanks to everyone who participated in the nets listed, and special thanks to Rusty Kirkpatrick, our STM, who compiles the information in a concise format each month.

And now, the numbers….
