VGzjyFhh[1]Now that the dust has settled from our first week of W1AW/4 in Alabama, it’s time to start preparing for the October operation. The process for requesting op time has been completely revamped. This new procedure provides the ability to reserve operating time/band/mode slots on the fly. Just click on an empty slot and it’s reserved! If your plans change and you can’t operate a particular slot, you can release previously reserved times as well. Continue reading

W1AW/4 – Alabama

W1Aw/4 operated from a number of locations and modes from  around Alabama in June as part of the W1AW portable operations in celebration of ARRL’s 100 year Centennial.

David, W4MD and  Tommy, KG4MPU, operated W1AW/4  a number of evenings on 20 meter Phone compiling 1364 contacts in the US and beyond.  This was a very rewarding experience and a great way to help celebrate the 100 years of Amateur Radio.

2014 Alabama Section Outstanding Youth Ham Award

The 2014 Alabama Section Outstanding Youth Ham Award is intended to recognize a young ham who has demonstrated his or her dedication to Amateur Radio through his or her activities. Although there are several national awards of similar merit, we recognized the need for an award that honors outstanding young hams on the local level. Thus, the Alabama Section Outstanding Youth Ham Award was born. This award is not a contest for a prize. Any prizes given are secondary in nature. A person selected “Alabama Outstanding Youth Ham”; is judged on his or her contributions to society through Amateur Radio. This year’s awards will be prior to the award.

Also we are honored to have ICOM‘s continued support of this award with the presentation of an ID-51A analog/D-Star portable to the winner.  In addition GigaParts will also be a sponsor. Continue reading
