N2DUP announces run for ARRL Minnesota section manager

   Chuck Gysi, N2DUP, has announced his candidacy for Minnesota section manager in this summer's election in the American Radio Relay League.

   Gysi is a long-time ARRL volunteer and has been an active amateur radio operator for a solid 22 years.  He chose to run for the section manager's position because of his leadership experience.

   "I have a lot to bring to the section manager's position," Gysi said.  "I am the best candidate running because of my leadership skills and long-time involvement as an amateur."

   The section manager oversees the more than 2,500 ARRL members in Minnesota and appoints hams to serve in capacities ranging from official observers to public information officers.  

   "I can bring the ARRL Minnesota section back on track and fill unfilled key appointments," Gysi said.  "I have served in a number of key ARRL positions in the past and know how to find the best people to get the job done."

   ARRL members will receive ballots from league headquarters in Newington, Conn., about July 1.  

   Gysi currently serves as an ARRL public information officer and also has served as emergency coordinator, district emergency coordinator and official emergency station.  He is a member of the Rochester Amateur Radio Club and the Minnesota Wireless Association.  He also has served as a volunteer in amateur radio communications during his entire 22 years as a ham operator.

   "I am the only qualified and experienced candidate running for section manager," Gysi said.  "The Minnesota section has a lot of work ahead that needs to be done and only an experienced candidate can handle the task.  That's why I ask you to vote for a leader. I look forward to serving my fellow ARRL members in our great state."

   Gysi is available to make presentations at club meetings or other gatherings of hams anywhere in Minnesota.  Call him toll-free at (888) 463-5355 or send an e-mail to  In addition, he has set up an extensive web site about his candidacy at
