W9NT (SK) Shack Auction to Benefit RRRA

Gurnee Bridgman, W9NT, became a Silent Key April 17, 2019 (obituary) and generously remembered RRRA in his will.

A silent auction to liquidate W9NT station equipment willed to RRRA will be held immediately following the club’s July business meeting 16 July, 2019, at the West Fargo City Hall building, 800 4th Ave East, West Fargo, ND. The proceeds of this silent auction will benefit RRRA.

Gurnee was an active ham and kept his station—for the most part—up to date with modern equipment. The equipment offered for auction is presentable, clean, and was in use up until Gurnee became a Silent Key; however no warranty is implied or offered.

New CEO Wants ARRL to Serve All Ages and Amateur Radio Interests

Newly elected ARRL CEO Howard Michel, WB2ITX, is still on the uphill side of the learning curve as he acquaints himself with ARRL Headquarters and the nearly 90 staffers who work there. The New Jersey native arrived at HQ on October 15 and has spent much of his time since meeting with department managers and others to get his bearings, with an eye toward building consensus and aligning people, programs, and services in the same direction.

Michel would like to see ARRL focus on the future of Amateur Radio and not become the redoubt of a particular generation of radio amateur or interest group. He said, “Ham radio shouldn’t abandon the old guardians of the hobby, but at the same time, it needs to have new things that appeal to people who have different interests and different passions.” 1
