From this week’s Amateur Radio Newsline Headlines:
- We look back at this month’s Orlando Hamcation, the second largest gathering of amateurs after Dayton Hamvention. It wasn’t just the 70th such Hamcation; it was also the 2016 ARRL National Convention.
- The amateur community is mourning the death of David Lefavour, W7GOX, of Los Lunas, New Mexico, who was a member of the Hurricane Watch Net for more than 20 years, and who served as its net manager between 2006 and 2009. He had also served as a net controller for the Maritime Mobile Service Network.
- The only thing real about the earthquake in Utah earlier this month was the response it got from hams and other emergency team members. But that’s what made the mock drill such a success.
