Promote ARRL's 90th anniversary, your club and Amateur Radio! The League is calling on affiliated clubs, public information volunteers and others to lend a hand in promoting ARRL's 90th anniversary. "We have created several resources to help promote the 90th, but there are lots of other opportunities gain added public recognition for clubs and for local Amateur Radio activities," said ARRL Media Relations Manager Jennifer Hagy, N1TDY. ARRL--the National Association for Amateur Radio was founded in 1914 by Hiram Percy Maxim, later 1AW, and Clarence Tuska, later 1AY. Visit the ARRL Public Relations Department Web page for additional information. Certificates will be given to clubs or individuals who put on public Amateur Radio demonstrations or displays through the end of 2004. ARRL invites photos and/or information about your local public relations efforts to ARRL Media Relations Manager Jennifer Hagy, N1TDY.

With the statement by President George W. Bush in Minneapolis on April 26th that he supports BPL, it is most important that all Amateur Radio Operators join in a grassroots campaign. It is most urgent that we go on record as not supporting the President's position on BPL. I urge you to contact the White House, your Senators and Representatives by letter, e-mail, FAX, or telephone expressing your opposition to BPL technologies.
E-mails can be sent directly to the White House using firstname.lastname@example.org or the online form that is available at:
Telephone calls can be made to either: (202) 456-1111 (comments) or (202) 456-1414 (switchboard). Be ready to give a very short, concise statement. The operators are very good - they tally the calls.
The easiest and most common way to communicate with Congress is through letters and E-mails. Many people question whether there is a difference between a letter and an e-mail to a Member of Congress. The answer is yes and no. Both are treated equally as they come into the office. The difference comes in timeliness. Due to security procedures, e-mail may arrive at its intended recipent a bit quicker. Most local newspapers have the addresses of your Senators and Representatives.
When you mail or e-mail a letter or note to the President, or a Member of Congress, please send a copy of your correspondance to me. This will allow me to follow up with additional timely comments. Also, I will forward copies of your letters and e-mails to the ARRL's Washington Team for future follow-ups.
Draft letters to the President, and Members of Congress have been placed on the Indiana Section ARRL Website
I urge you to contact the White House, and Members of Congress in a quick and timely manner. This issue not only affects Amateur Radio, but a number of other communications services that are vital to our nation's security.
73, Jim Sellers K9ZBM, Indiana Section Manager

Now the fun begins. I have sent out emails to quite a few people, inviting them to register to post to this webpage. If I haven't emailed you, and you want to contribute, please email me. You can post anything here, as long as it is relevant to the club or amateur radio, and it doesn't degrade other members. Jack knows how to post, so you can email him also if you have questions.
A word about pictures. Take a look at the pics I have posted below. Try to make your photos that size or smaller, and make sure to add some text so that people know what it is they are looking at. Email me if you want to post pictures, and I will walk you through the steps. It is not hard, but there are more steps to doing that than just a regular post.
Well, I guess that is it. Hope everyone likes the new design. Let me know if you have any suggestions for the site!
