The ARRL Board of Directors' Executive Committee (EC) will meet on
October 12 in Denver, Colorado. The meeting agenda includes legal,
legislative, and organizational matters as well as reports from ARRL
President Rick Roderick, K5UR; ARRL CEO Howard Michel, WB2ITX, and
Washington Counsel David Siddall, K3ZJ. The EC will consider an ex
parte filing on ARRL's petition for rule making (RM-11785) to the FCC
to create a new, contiguous secondary Amateur Service band at 5 MHz,
filed in January of 2017. In its petition, ARRL asked the Commission to
keep four of the current five 60-meter channels -- one would be within
the new band -- as well as the current operating rules, including the
100 W PEP effective radiated power (ERP) limit.
The Tokelau Islands ZK3A DXpedition has ceased operation early. Due to
the illness of an Island resident, the ZK3A Tokelau Islands DXpedition
https://tokelau2019.com/ shut down a couple of days ahead of
schedule. "ALL TEAM MEMBERS ARE FINE!" said an announcement on the ZK3A
website. "A person on the island is ill. So, they have sent the boat
there early to get this person medical help. The team has ceased
operations and [is] packing up all equipment to get on that boat,
because there will not be another boat for 10 days." As of October 8,
ZK3A had logged approximately 50,000 contacts in 7 days of operation on
CW, SSB, RTTY, FT8, and EME, as well as 10 contacts on slow-scan TV.
The DXpedition had been set to conclude on October 11.
