From: Steven Elliott KA3UDR, Bedford County EC (ka3udr@arrl.net):

On on 29 April we will be doing our first Public Service event for this year. The Bloody Run Canoe Classic. I need to know who can help us out with this so we can plan on where to position members.

 

Hamfest Season

Had a good time at the Two Rivers ARC Hamfest this past Sunday (April 23). There was a good tuenout, and lots of great food! Thanks to South-1 DEC Terry Nemitz KA3UTD, Allegheny County EC Bob Timmins AB3ED, DXCC Card Checker Jack Buzon KA3HPM, and PIO Bob Mente NU3Q who all helped out at the ARRL table. Also, many thanks to everyone who stopped by to say hello to us, and discuss ARRL business. Your WPA Section Staff is here to serve you!

The Dayton Hamvention will take place on May 18-21 at the new location in Xenia Ohio. Hope to see you there!

Then on Sunday, June 4 plan on the WPA Section Convention at the Breezeshooters Hamfest at the Big Butler Fairgrounds, US 422 in Prospect, PA. ARRL events are scheduled all morning, including a very special guest from ARRL-HQ Staff in Newington, CT live and in person!

 

Happy Martian New Year!

The North Hills Amateur Radio Club is sponsoring a special event station K3M as part of the Mars New Year Celebration on Friday May 5 and Saturday May 6th at the Mars Area History and Landmarks Museum in Mars, PA. The Martian Solar Year is 1 year 322 days and this is the second Mars New Year Celebration in Mars, PA. NASA will be in force with displays and fun games. This event features displays and educational programs from the Mission to Mars by NASA, as part of the NASA STEM Education program.

The NHARC will have an HF operating station, operating 80-10 on CW and SSB. We will also be on the D-Star REF0063C reflector as well as using a handheld satellite HT. ARRL Western Pennsylvania Section Officials will be on hand to support the activity. Local Amateurs will demonstrate their homebuilt radio devices, and a D-Star hot spot will be running on a Raspberry Pi.
