ARRL Youth Editor: Young People Can Help with Emergency Communications, Too

E-mail Print PDF
ARRL Youth Editor Duncan MacLachlan, KU0DM, of Prairie Village, Kansas, says many young hams want to help out with Emergency Communications and ARES activities, but really don't know where to start. "One disadvantage of being younger hams is the fact that legal guardians are a must for most situations," MacLachlan said. "While a young ham may not be able to go out and save the day with a handheld transceiver after a large storm, there are many ways they can aid in emergency operations."

NCJ and ARRL Needs to Fix Subscriptions

E-mail Print PDF

National Contest JournalA few weeks ago, I got a note in the mail from the National Contest Journal asking me to renew my subscription. The problem is: I already did.

Right at the bottom of the original renewal notice, it says you can renew online. And I did. I also got the confirming renewal e-mail three weeks before from the ARRL that I was again getting notice for.

Now, most published magazines use some kind of service to take care of subscriptions. And the ARRL and NCJ are not the only ones who don’t get databases updated in a timely manner. I have a whole “magazine subscriptions” note in Outlook that just has the expiration dates for the subscriptions because the magazines send out renewal notices one month after you’ve subscribed.

But if money is tight and the League makes money on publications, why is it so hard to synch the databases so that when I renew online I don’t get the paper, envelope, stamp, and time spent on a renewal notice in the mail three weeks later?

If the League is serious about using technology, here’s one to implement that will give you some money to serve hams instead of magazine subscriptions services.

I recently installed dokuwiki on my website and it had been great. I wonder why I didn’t do this before. I keep scribbling my notes on getting Neuros OSD2 up. I also plan to keep notes on what I do (including book notes, other software/hardware setup notes etc). I am wondering, why not have the wiki as the frontpage of this website instead of the blog?
