    Baker Island Presentation!!!

    The KH1/KH7Z Baker Island Team Leader, Don Greenbaum N1DG gave a wonderful presentation to the Blackstone Valley Amateur Radio Club! Don presented video, photos and personal stories about the recent Baker Island DXpedition which just took place from June 27 to July 6.

    Baker and Howland was #5 on the Club Log Most Wanted list for DXCC prior to the DXpedition. They managed to log nearly 70,000 QSOs including 18,000 (26%) unique call signs during their ten day activation despite less than ideal band conditions. More than 20% of those who worked them gained an all time new one. This will do some serious rearranging of the deck chairs on the Honor Roll.

    If you missed the presentation, Don will be the special guest speaker at the Boxboro DXCC/Contest dinner on Friday night, September 7th

    Don did a great job of expaining how difficult and expensive these operations can be. Consider donating so he can do it again!

    Join the ARRL!

    If you haven't joined the ARRL, you should strongly consider doing it now! Don't take the Amateur Bands for granted. The ARRL fights constantly to keep private industry from infinging on the Amateur Bands. They lobby the FCC on YOUR behalf. There is a lot of pressure to re-allocate Amateur Bands for business use.

    In order for ARRL to make the case that the Amateur Bands should be preserved, they need to demostrate that there is a real interest in Amateur Radio. Dues paying members provide the money and clout the ARRL needs. This is just one reason you should be a member.

    Check out the ARRL website!
