Update August 12, 2015

Hello.

A few things happening this weekend of interest to the Division.

First let me remind you that this is “last call” for nominations for
the annual; Hudson Division awards. No nominations will be accepted
after August 15th. We have been receiving many more nominations this
year than we have in quite some time. All the nominees are more than
worthy, and choosing awardees this year will be very difficult. So …
keep those cards and letters (and nominations) coming! (And buy tickets
and ads!!!)

You don’t need to fill out a form to do so. Simply email Vice Director
Bill Hudzik at w2udt@arrl.org with the name and callsign of the person
you want to nominate with an explanation of why they should receive the
award. But do it today!

On Saturday, August 15th, the Ramapo Mountain ARC will be holding their
37th Annual Hamfest at their new location:

St. Catherine RC Church

I will be printing HR-1301 S. 1685 letters for those who want to
support the effort. I will also be taking ARRL renewals for those who
want to beat the increase come January 1st.
