Online Fund-Raising Hoax

General News

Online Fund-Raising Hoax
Targeting Some ARRL Members


07/02/2018

A poorly worded online solicitation seeking donations to support medical costs for an ill youngster is not from ARRL and is a scam!

Some members have reported receiving an email with the subject line “Help Support Dawn,” dated on or about June 30, stating that “Dawn” is the critically ill son of an ARRL member and requires urgent surgery.

 

“ARRL would never send an unsigned email like this to our members,” said ARRL CEO Barry Shelley, N1VXY. “This is clearly a hoax, and we would never solicit for private causes in this fashion. To prey on the willingness of our members to help other hams in need, is particularly despicable.”
 

The attempt to solicit funds through GoFundMe and PayPal may be aimed at collecting personal and credit card information.

ARRL members are urged not to repost, forward, or respond to this request.

DMR ID Number

General News
DMR ID Number

Any licensed amateur radio operator who has aspirations to eventually delve into the field of DMR radio, it is recommended that if you don't already have an ID number for your radio, you do so as soon as possible.

The registration database has issued almost all of the existing available numbers, and it is uncertain what will happen when the upper limit is reached.

Go to the following web page to register

If you have questions about DMR, contact one of our club DMR standardization team members:

New Repeater

General News

 

 

 

Good morning everyone,

 

With the excitement of the new 441.775 repeater coming online it has been brought to my attention that the repeater is being "kerchunked" quite a bit.

 

While this is common place it has been exacerbated with the new machine. I would like to remind everyone that it is not good repeater etiquette (or FCC legal) to simply "kerchunk" the repeater without identifying.

 

If you are testing your rig or trying to see how well the repeater is working in your area the correct (and FCC legal) way to do so would be to identify using your call sign and state that you are testing.
