From a Box of Radio Parts, Digi-Key Grew to a $2.3 Billion Anchor of NWMN:
by on March 23, 2018
THIEF RIVER FALLS, MINN. -- If you were going to pick a spot to locate a worldwide shipping company, this wouldn’t be it. An hour from the nearest interstate highway, with an airport terminal that’s smaller than the local curling club, Thief River Falls is a place where the recent arrival of a Tractor Supply store was big news. Yet this city of 8,700 residents about 300 miles northwest of the Twin Cities is home to one of the state’s largest employers outside of the metro area, a company started by a ham radio enthusiast that has become one of the biggest distributors of electronic components in the world -- and is poised for another round of expansion.

Hospital Ship Crew Members Get Amateur Radio Training at Sea:
by The ARRL Letter on March 22, 2018
On February 21, US Army civilian contractor Tim Millea, AJ7UU, and MARS Volunteer Doug Smith, W7KF, embarked on the hospital ship USNS Mercy from San Diego to Hawaii to begin its deployment for "Pacific Partnership 2018" (PP18), a humanitarian assistance exercise that will include several Pacific stops. Their mission during the first leg of the voyage was to conduct Technician and General Amateur Radio classes for more than a dozen military and civilian personnel crewing the Military Sealift Command hospital ship, and to provide training in military HF communication procedures. The pair provided two or three training classes a day for the crew, who took the classes following their work shifts. Classroom training was interspersed with on-air activities in the ship's Amateur Radio room. The Mercy is utilizing the Weak Signal Propagation Reporting (WSPR) tool under K6MRC. On March 3, the Mercy docked in Hawaii, where a group of local Volunteer Examiners (VEs), headed by ARRL Pacific Section Manager Joe Speroni, AH0A, administered Technician and General licensing exams to the students.

Blind Man Reaches World Audience Through Radio:
by on March 21, 2018
“There’s nothing you can’t do.” That’s the message a Welland resident hoped to convey when he set out to write VA3DV: Vincent’s Diary, a book about his life. Vince Dellemonache, is a 78-year-old blind man born in Penne, Italy, and raised in a farm house containing his parents, sister, grandparents and aunt. He and his family emigrated to Canada when he was 12. Suffering from retinis pigmentosa did not keep him from leading a happy, normal life. He and his wife Mary have been married nearly 52 years and together they had three children – Anthony, Mauro and Angela. Dellemonache taught himself to clean, do laundry and cook to care for his daughter Angela while his wife was away working. Angela was severely disabled from birth and did not speak. Under her father’s care, she miraculously learned to walk. Angela passed away five years ago; she was 46. Dellemonache became interested in amateur radio and obtained a certificate of proficiency in 1982. Through radio frequencies, Dellemonache connected with people around the globe. “I’ve got friends all over,” he said. In 2005 he founded HandiHam Radio, a club that educated and equipped people with disabilities with computers and Ham radio equipment so they, too, could connect with the world around them.
