Ballots were counted today, and challenger Doug Rehman, K4AC, of Mt Dora, Florida, narrowly defeated incumbent Southeastern Division Director Greg Sarratt, W4OZK, of Huntsville, Alabama, 961 to 949 votes. Rehman was among challengers who ran against Sarratt in 2010. Sarratt has served as a Director since 2007.
There was no change in the Vice Director position. Incumbent Jim Millsap, WB4NWS, handily outpolled challenger George Hawrysko, K4AWA, 1429 to 467 votes. Millsap, of Acworth, Georgia, was appointed in 2012 to complete the term of Andrea Hartlage, KG4IUM, who resigned when she moved out of the Southeastern Division.ARRL President Kay Craigie, N3KN, informed the candidates of the election results by telephone. ARRL International Affairs Vice President Jay Bellows, K0QB, observed the balloting and reported the results.

I was in college and working summers at several Radio Stations as a “combo” man. That meant I had a First Phone Engineers license and also did DJ work. I got the chance because directional antenna AM stations had to have a “First
Phone” on duty to check the readings of all the meters and array pattern every 30 minutes from sunset to sunrise. I usually got the midnight to dawn shift. Continue reading

When these details have been worked out, everyone on this list will be notified. If you can think of any groups I may have missed, let me know and I will add them to the mailing list. Also, please feel free to direct any questions, comments, or suggestions you have about this event to me at email@example.com. In the meantime, start talking up this event at your club meetings and on your local repeaters.

The ARRL PR Committee has been working on several ideas to help promote our 100thanniversary next year. One of those ideas is to ask Google to create a “Doodle” for us on the Friday of our Centennial Convention in Hartford next year.
What’s a ‘Doodle,’ you ask? It’s the special drawings that Google puts on their main search engine page to honor a person or event. Today’s Google Doodle honors Erwin Schroedinger, who changed the way quantum mechanics is understood. You can see it today atwww.google.com
We think it would be pretty cool to have something like that on Google’s page commemorating the ARRL’s 100th birthday party. We could use your help in making this happen.
I’ve provided text you can use to email the Google Doodles team and ask them to consider the idea. There are no guarantees, of course, and submitters get no input of the design itself, but the more they hear from us, the more it will be on the radar of the Doodles team. Continue reading
