Thanksgiving STUFFing - Plus Lots More!!

Hey Gang..  Have you seen that we have a winner for the Thanksgiving Drawing?  Jacquelyn Swinehart, KE8EVU won the Handbook for Thanksgiving..!!

Now don’t fret, there is still one more chance to win this month. If you entered for the Thanksgiving drawing you are already entered for this one, so you’re all set..!!  BUT..  If you didn’t…  You need to get into the drawing. You’ll never win anything if you don’t enter, that’s guaranteed!!  So, for those of you who have told me that you just never win anything, get signed up NOW!! 

To enter the drawing all you need to do is fill in a couple of boxes on the form.. (your name and email). That’s you need to do to be entered into a drawing to win a 2016 ARRL softcover Handbook. There’s nothing else required (Oh.. You do need to be a resident of Ohio to win..)   The winner will be mailed the Handbook at my cost. Best of luck to you, and get registered early so that you don’t miss out on the two chances to win!

Here's the link to get your registered..  


Ohio Amateurs in Action..

Hey Gang, I haven’t heard much lately from any of you.. Now I know that every club has done events this year, so send me those pictures of your events.. Field Day, bike races, marathons and all those fun activities that you’ve found yourself involved in where Amateurs are in Action!! 

You can find a photo gallery of what I’ve received so far at:
as well as there is a link to this page right from the main page of the Ohio Section website..

I’m sure you all of pictures that you could send. Send your pictures to me at:  and include a brief explanation of the event and I’ll get the pictures added to the gallery.. I’m looking for new pictures that I might be able to use in the next Ohio Section Banner, so make sure that you get your pictures to me.. I want a great representation of ALL of the Ohio Section.

C’mon gang.. send me those action pictures! I’m sure that there are a lot of them out there and I want them ALL!!  Don’t be bashful. 


Are you getting those emails from me? If not, all you have to do is to
“Opt-In” to receive them. Just send me an email at: and let me know that you want to be added.. It’s really that easy.

I urge all of you to make sure that everyone, regardless of whether they are a League member or not, get signed up to receive these emails.
You can always  “Opt-Out”  at any time if you feel this is not what you were expecting.
