In Brief...

ARRL Executive Committee to Meet October 14 in Connecticut: The ARRL Executive Committee of the Board of Directors will meet on Saturday, October 14. ARRL President Rick Roderick, K5UR, will chair the session, which will hear reports from officers and the general counsel. Topping the agenda are FCC regulatory matters, including a review of enforcement issues and concerns, as well as open items with no FCC action since the July 2017 Board meeting. The Amateur Radio Parity Act of 2017 (HR 555) will be the focus when the discussion turns to legislative matters. The Executive Committee will hear a status report. The Committee will review pending action items including work in progress by committees, among them the Amateur Auxiliary Study Ad Hoc Committee, and will develop a plan to implement the recommendations of the Entry Level License Committee. The Committee also will recognize new ARRL Life Members. The Executive Committee is tasked by the ARRL Bylaws to address League matters between regular Board meetings.

Noted Micronesian Radio Amateur Albert Haped, V63YAH: Albert Haped, V63YAH, of Ulithi Atoll, Miocronesia, died on October 3. An ARRL member, he was 64. Haped had been one of the "people on the other end" of daily contacts to the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) that recipients of the ARRL International Humanitarian of the Year John Bush, KH6DLK/V63JB; Barbara Darling, NH7FY, and Richard Darling, AH7G, make almost daily. He was an island chief of Mangyang Island, one of the islands surrounding Ulithi Atoll. Before retiring, Haped was a teacher at Federai Elementary School. Haped was active during the recent Typhoon Maysak that hit FSM, especially during the recovery.

School Club Roundup Participants Reminded to Tune Clear of Any Caribbean Relief Nets: Participants in the ARRL School Club Roundup (SCR are being reminded that Caribbean traffic nets associated with the hurricane recovery effort may be active on 80, 40, and 20 meters. Several formal and informal traffic-handling operations have been active on 14.255 and 14.275 MHz, as well as on 7.182 and 7.188 MHz, and in the high end of the CW subband on 40 meters, where Caribbean stations may operate on SSB. While stations on the US mainland may not be able to hear them, they can hear us in the US. Listen first and, if you're asked to move or told you're causing interference, please find another frequency.
