COUNTY HUNTING (USA-CA) -

K3IMC - Don - 2* - 1/12/2011 to 1/24/2011 - SSB and CW - ECC accepted
I am finally going to do it. My wife and I are going to Hawaii to put out
all five counties. My wife does not necessarily agree with my priority, but
what can I say. We are visiting the islands of Oahu, Kauai, Molokai, Maui,
and Hawaii.

The schedule below may change based on weather and what we are doing. I will
try to update this schedule daily, so check each morning.

The planned dates for each county are:

Oahu - Jan. 12 and 14
Kauai - Jan. 16 to 17
Kalawao + Maui - Jan. 19
Maui - Jan. 20 to 21
Hawaii - Jan. 23 to 24

I will have only 20m, and plan most of the activity on SSB (14.336 MHz), but
will run CW off the 20m SSB net frequency at the end of the SSB run. Unless
stated otherwise, CW will be run on 14.343 if it is clear.

I will probably be monitoring the net during daylight hours, and I will try
to work any mobile stations I hear. After researching various propagation
predictions, I feel that the best conditions for the east coast should occur
between 2200 and 2400 UTC. That is 5:00 to 7:00 PM east coast time.

I hope sun spot cycle god keeps conditions good. I am sorry that I will only
be on Kalawao one day. Good hunting! QSL via home call. [County Hunter Web]

SILENT KEYS -

A. George Spencer, VE3AGS, passed away December 21, 2010. He was 90.
Spencer served as ARRL Canadian Division Vice Director from January
1970-January 1974. In 1974 -- upon the election of Canadian Director
Noel Eaton, VE3CJ, as ARRL Vice President -- Spencer moved up to the
Director position and served one term. An engineer by training and
profession, Spencer lived all across Canada. While on the ARRL Board of
Directors, he was VE2MS and then VE4IM; he later became VE6AW before
moving to Ontario and obtaining his initials. [ARRL Letter-List]

Leonard Andrew "Woody" Woodward, W7KOP, of Mapleton, Utah, passed
away December 25, 2010. He was 99. Woodward -- who, according to the
Boy Scouts of America, was the "longest continuously registered
Scouter" -- was involved with scouting for more than 87 years. BSA's
Utah National Parks Council Program Director John Gailey called
Woodward "an amazing man" and told the ARRL that his friend was still
"very much active on the air weeks before his death." At the age of 8
in 1918, Woodward built his own radio. At the time of his death, he was
using the Internet to connect Amateur Radio operators around the world.
Woodward was known all over the world as an unofficial ambassador of
America and Scouting through his radio contacts. Read more here

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Yasme Excellence Awards

   The Yasme Excellence Awards are given to individuals who through their
own service, creativity, effort and dedication have made a significant
contribution to amateur radio. (www.yasme.org/excellence.html) The
contribution may be in recognition of technical, operating or organizational
achievement as all three are necessary for amateur radio to grow and
prosper. The YASME Foundation recognizes the following individuals in order
to inspire them and others on behalf of amateur radio now and in the future.

* Ramón Santoyo V, XE1KK who is recognized for his work in advancing
Mexican ham radio and representation within the international radio
community. In addition, Ramón serves as IARU Region 2 Secretary. He has been
a tireless advocate of amateur radio in Central America and a strong
proponent of radiosport and the World Radiosport Team Championships. Voices
like Ramón's help the amateur community work together worldwide,
strengthening our position and reputation as important members of the
wireless community.

* Makoto (Mako) Mori, JE3HHT who deserves much credit for popularizing RTTY
by writing the MMTTY software modem and making it available for integration
into logging software. He also wrote MMVARI, which implements other popular
digital modes, and several other digital mode software products. MMTTY is a
great product and Mako has exhibited great ham spirit with a huge effect as
can be observed as RTTY operation continues to be the fastest growing mode
of HF digital operation.

* Bruce Horn, WA7BNM who continues to generate useful and innovative web
sites including a complete upgrade of his excellent contest calendar Web
site. Bruce supports contesting with a web site that enables contesters to
convert paper and other forms of contest logs to Cabrillo format. His 3830
score reporting and compilation service has changed the nature of
radiosport. Bruce was also a key player in the initial efforts to develop
methods of exchanging scoring information in the web-friendly XML format.

* Rick Meuthing, KN6KB for developing the new WINMOR sound-card digital
mode software now gaining wide use in the worldwide Winlink 2000 system.
Many attempts at approaching the performance of the proprietary PACTOR III
protocol and hardware failed before WINMOR, attesting to the difficulty of
the problem. Rick also invented an improved "channel busy" detector that
senses many different types of modulation and will drastically reduce the
inter mode QRM common from other semi-automated digital protocols.

* Mikael Styrefors, SM2O who has developed the Remote Radio Interface. The
ability to connect radios and operators transparently and robustly over the
Internet is a key technological element of putting top-grade remote HF
stations on the air - something more common every day. Remote stations will
undoubtedly be important in making and keeping amateur radio available to
urban and suburban amateurs in the future as they deal with an increasingly
noise-filled and interference-prone electromagnetic environment.

* Alex Shovkoplyas, VE3NEA for developing DX Atlas, Morse Runner, HAM-CAP,
CW Skimmer, Rocky and other innovative software. Alex's products are making
a remarkable impact on the competitive HF operating environment. The quality
of the software is remarkable, and having it available to the amateur
community at little or no cost demonstrates excellent ham spirit. Programs
like these are rapidly expanding the technological frontier of radio in
general and are prime examples of how amateurs can continue to make
contributions.

* Pepe Ardid, EA5KB who makes it possible for many Latin American DXers,
who are in many cases saddled with deficient postal services and QSL
Bureaus, to confirm contacts with attractive and unique QSL cards.
Confirmations are rapid and he confirms not only direct but via bureau as
well. Pepe contributes countless hours of service in support of his fellow
amateurs so they can continue to participate in one of amateur radio's most
cherished traditions.
