All,

#2000 in the books

Just wanted to share the news the ARLHS has reached a milestone with assignment of number 2000. Check the online roster to see the lucky individual…

Lots of renewals and new members

Things have been busy in the ARLHS, LLC back office with many renewals and several new members. As well the activation announcements trickle in for:

  • this weekend’s ARLHS NLLW,
  • the ILLW 3rd weekend in August and
  • many random light activations.

World List of Lights

The WLOL team continues to work through a backlog of proposals for entries to our light list. It seems our little WLOL list has become somewhat of a standard light reference. We regularly receive coordinate updates, corrections and other notes to help fine tune the information stored in our database. There’s no doubt the WLOL exists for amateur radio purposes, but has become much more to world at large. A big thank you to Dan (KD3CQ) and his merry gang of reviewers who analyze proposals and corrections with keen and careful eyes.

ARLHS Certificates

We can’t forget Tim (K4VDX) who has singlehandedly modernized the certificate process making it more efficient than ever. Many of you are already enjoying the product of Tim’s efforts. Thanks Tim!

ARLHS Cheerleader

Our cheerleader is, of course, Jim (KA3UNQ) who’s frequent messages keep us appraised of important details. I give Jim credit for giving the ARLHS flywheel a fresh spin just about every day. It certainly inspires me to keep doing what I do in the back office. Thanks and keep it up Jim.

ARLHS Activators

And of course our intrepid activators give us the contacts we desire for our logs. Thanks to all of them for the, all too often expensive and difficult, journeys to far away places in the pursuit of activating lights.

2018 has been a great year

Thanks to all for a great year so far. I hope to activate a light or two this weekend in Maine.
