The ARRL Ohio Section News Update

Posted in Dale’s Tales July 1, 2017 by ARRL Ohio Section Manager: Scott D Yonally, N8SY

Glen W8MUK was contacted on Great Lakes Hamcon Forums and offered our Museum Ships activation of the Schoonmaker as a forum.

He asked if I would be willing to do the forum and I accepted.

Whenever there is an outstanding Amateur Radio Team you are always willing to talk about them and their event.

Great PR for TMRA, The Museum of the Great Lakes, and Museum Ships Weekend.




GREAT LAKES HAMCON.  Announcing Carole Perry WB2MGP will be hosting her well received Youth Forum at HamCon. In addition we have scheduled forums for DX, Fox hunting - complete with a fox hunt, QRP Operating, Radio Propagation, Kit Building Techniques for Success, a One-Day Tech Class with FCC License Testing and the ARRL Members' Forum. 

The Ohio Section will also host a special ceremony for new inductees into the Royal Order of the Wouff Hong and the Toledo Mobile Radio Assn. will hold a presentation on their recent activations of Museum Ships. 

As we get closer to the fall, your Section Manager's bulletins will carry more complete information as well as what appears in Dale's Tales. 

HamCon Tickets are now on sale along with camping reservations.  Check the web pages at
