Description:

Greetings to all Amateur Radio Operators.  This is Marc, N4UFP with the December 2014 South Carolina Section Manager’s Report.  Please remember that the SC Section website can be found at: www.arrlsc.org/ 

We have some new faces in the leadership of the Roanoke Division, of which the South Carolina section is a part. Our Division Director, Dennis Bodson W4PWF has stepped down after more than twenty years’ service to amateurs in the Division and the ARRL and will be replaced by the current Vice Director, Dr. Jim Boehner N2ZZ from Aiken, SC.  Many of you know Dr. Jim, who served as SC Section Manager for nearly a decade  prior to becoming Vice Director.  He was a great Section Manager, an even better Vice Director, and will be a superlative Director. Please congratulate him the next time that you see him.

The Vice Director’s position will be filled by Bill Morine, N2COP, former NC Section Manager.  SC amateurs will have an opportunity to see Bill at the Charleston Hamfest on 7 February.  I enjoyed working with Bill when he was the NC SM and I know that he will do a good job for the Division as Vice Director.

Speaking of Charleston, here are the details for the Charleston Hamfest:

Date:  7 February 2015
Location: Armory Park Community Center (32.885 N - 79.993 W)
                  5000 Lackawanna Blvd., North Charleston, SC 29405.
Website: http://www.wa4usn.org

The ARRL Forum scheduled for 10:00 am will include comments from our new Vice Director, Bill Morine, N2COP, and a presentation from Chuck Skolaut K0BOG, the ARRL’s Field & Regulatory Correspondent, who will be the speaking about the Official Observer Program and the Intruder Watch.

I would also like to remind everyone that The Trident Amateur Radio Club will be operating a special event station, N4H, on February 17th from the site of the launch at Breeches Inlet, on Sullivans Island, SC. This event will commemorate the 151st anniversary of the sinking of the U.S.S. Housatonic by the submarine H. L. Hunley in Charleston SC, the first successful sinking of a warship by a submarine.

Proposed frequencies are 7.262 14.262, 28.562 MHz. 

To request a certificate send contact information to PO Box 60732 N Charleston, SC 29419  A certificate will be sent upon receipt of a self-addressed envelope and one dollar ($1) cash. Complete information is available at www.tridenthams.org/hunley.htm

That’s all for this month. Now let’s do the numbers….
