Calling NH Radio Amateurs March 2022:

With COVID in the rear view mirror for now clubs have begun meeting again face to face. Thanks to all at the Central NH Club for their invitation for the March 1st meeting. In addition to discussion of HB1644 and League happenings, a presentation on the 90th anniversary of WFEA was given.

The March 9th snowstorm postponed the CCDX meeting which has been rescheduled for April 13th. Thanks to the Contoocook club for providing early amateur radio swap activities at the Henniker Flea market Sunday March 20th. Go to k1bke.org for more info.

More activity coming up in April with the Port City flea market on April 9th. Check out the Club’s web site w1wgm.org for more info and of course Nearfest at the Deerfield fairgrounds returns for the spring version April 29 and 30. 

We were very saddened to hear of Wayne Santos, N1CKM, passing at the end of February. Wayne’s dynamic leadership helped guide the NH ARES program for many years. Wayne will be greatly missed and our thoughts and prayers continue to be with Elizabeth.

Section has announced that Al Shuman, K1AKS, will be taking the NH ARES helm. Al is a former nine-times Section Manager and several stints as SEC. Having Al available and willing to step into the role of SEC will provide the continuity needed at this time. Please welcome him as he works to develop the ARES program in NH post Covid.

That’s it for now…hope to see you soon at the club meetings and flea markets!


Pete, K1PJS

NH Section Manager
