Local news from the ham community 

Thanks to Dennis, KB3HPC, web master for the North Hills Amateur Radio Club for this information. I had met to talk with Jack, W9UK, prior to his departure to get the details of the DXpedition but did not manage to catch up with him.

The following local hams will be on a DeXpedition to the Colony of
Montserrat, Leeward Islands in the Caribbean.

W9UK - Jack with callsign VP2MUK
W3WH - Bill with callsign VP2MWH
K3VX - Larry with callsign VP2MVX

They are there for a contest, but will be available as follows:
February 15, 2005 through February 21, 2006, 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM, on or about sideband frequencies:

3.782MHz, 7.280MHz, 14.265MHz, and 18.130MHz.
Mike King, WA3PYU, is looking for volunteers to help with communications for
the St. Patrick's Day parade. The parade is downtown. Volunteers are needed from approximately March 11 from about 7:00 AM until ?? not quite sure - I think 10:00 or 11:00 depending on where you are located.

This is a fun event and a low key way to get ready for the upcoming public service season.

If you are interested give Mike a call at (412) 481-1149.
