Field Day 2016

Good Evening –

This weekend is Field Day.  Those two words say it all!

If you’ve never participated in Field Day, please, go to the Field
Day Site Locator at

http://www.arrl.org/field-day-locator

Find a site nearest to you and go out and meet some hams.  Have a great
time.  And most of all, OPERATE!

As an aside, I’ve received many invitations from clubs this year from
all over the Division.  Unfortunately, we’re having some work done in
the house to replace a dining room ceiling that decided it was time to
die.  As such, I will only be able to make some short trips locally to
me, if at all.  At the very least I’ll work 1D from the house.

To those many clubs who’ve extended an invitation to me this year,
please accept my apologies.
See you on the air!

Today was somewhat disappointing as H.R. 1301 was due to be marked-up
by the House Commerce and Energy Committee.  Unfortunately, due to the
events on the House floor (literally) on Wednesday evening, Speaker
Ryan decided to adjourn the session until after July 4th.

We expect the bill to be moving forward after the break.  The next
step, after getting through the Commerce Committee, will be a vote by
the House of Representatives to pass the bill.  Should the bill pass,
it would then move on to the Senate for consideration.

I’ll continue to keep you informed about the progress of the
legislation.
