New England Information Net 1/8 & 2/12

The New England Division will conduct two experimental “New England Information Nets” to provide Section Managers, Section Emergency Coordinators, and Section Traffic Managers the opportunity to provide information and updates on activities in their respective sections that may be of interest New England-wide.

The first net will be held on January 8, 2023 at 10:00 AM on 3985 kHz; the second will be on Sunday, February 12 on Echolink New England Conference Room 9127.

There will not be a call-up for general check-ins. I understand that each section may have other commitments and not be able to participate. I look forward to hearing from as many of the section field organization leaders as possible.

Station KM1CC will be on the air on January 18, 2023 from 1800 UTC – 2300 UTC.  

Wednesday January 18, 2023 marks the 120th anniversary of Marconi’s first transatlantic message from the USA to the UK. KM1CC will be on the air to commemorate this achievement.

“We plan to operate HF 20 M, 40 M, and other bands as conditions allow. Check for frequencies.”

The Marconi Cape Cod Radio Club is a special event club.  The club has several on the air events a year to keep the accomplishments and story of Marconi and his South Wellfleet Wireless Station alive.  This station is listed as a National Landmark on the National Register of Historic Places (1975) and is now part of Cape Cod National Seashore, a unit of the National Park Service.   When possible, KM1CC sets up a temporary radio station inside the park.

New Connecticut Section Manager

Mike Walters, W8ZY, writes on the Connecticut ARRL Members List on January 3, 2023:

Subject: New Section Manager


I am pleased to announce that Bud Kozloff, W1NSK, is appointed to fill the role of Section Manager in Connecticut. Bud is currently the president of Candlewood Amateur Radio Association in Danbury and lives in Redding CT. Bud is also a member of the Yankee Clipper Contest Club and likes to operate CW.

I would also like to thank Betsey Doane, K1EIC, for filling in as Section Manager while the search continued. Betsey is of course well known in Connecticut and graciously agreed to help when needed.

Bud comes to this appointment with many years in the business world and the ham radio world.

In kicking off the ARRL Year of the Volunteers, this is a strong message that any ham can be a part of the ARRL and there is always something that a volunteer can do. Let’s all give Bud the support and assistance that a good Section Manager needs.
