by on September 4, 2015

Radio Broadcast Tells Sub's WWII Story:
by on September 4, 2015
Hobbyist cranks up Razorbackís old gear on anniversary of Japanís surrender: Using a metal storage container as a makeshift seat, a U.S. Navy veteran positioned himself in the cramped radio room of the USS Razorback submarine Wednesday afternoon, twiddling the knob that controls the radio's frequency. Once John Moore, 53, of Olathe, Kan., reached the frequency he wanted, he adjusted his old Telex headphones and lifted a microphone to his face. "C-Q, C-Q, November-five-Romeo," Moore said. "Special events station aboard the USS Razorback. C-Q, C-Q." Moore was using his Yaesu brand radio and the submarine's original whip antenna to contact other radio operators -- "C-Q" in radio-speak means "I seek you" -- to tell them about the Razorback's World War II history. He and a fellow amateur radio operator, Don Whitney, also of the Kansas City, Kan., area, traveled to North Little Rock to broadcast from the submarine on the 70th anniversary of Japan's formal surrender at Tokyo Bay, which marked the end of World War II.

The ARRL has told the FCC that Amateur Radio operation in the new 135.7-137.8 kHz (2200 meters) and 472-479 kHz (630 meters) bands should be as unfettered as possible from a regulatory standpoint.

by The ARRL Letter on September 3, 2015
Two Central Washington repeaters, owned and operated by the Lake Chelan Amateur Radio Club, have been destroyed by one of the wildfires raging in that state.
