==> + PUBLIC SERVICE: HURRICANE EARL HEADING FOR NORTH CAROLINA,
HURRICANE WARNINGS ISSUED FOR NEW ENGLAND

Hurricane Earl -- once again a Category 4 storm -- is currently
aiming for North Carolina's Outer Banks. At 11 AM (EDT) on Thursday,
September 2, Earl is located about 300 miles south of Cape Hatteras and
765 south of Nantucket Island, just off the coast of Massachusetts.
Earl is now moving north at a speed near 18 MPH, and is expected to
turn north-northeast with an increase in forward speed on Friday. The
center of Earl will pass near the North Carolina Outer Banks Thursday
night and approach Southeastern New England sometime on Friday night.
No significant change in strength is expected today, but forecasters at
the National Hurricane Center (NHC <http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/>;) expect
that the storm will show gradual weakening beginning on Friday.

"Here at ARRL Headquarters, we are continuing to monitor Hurricane
Earl," said ARRL Emergency Preparedness and Response Manager Mike
Corey, W5MPC. "I've been in touch with Section Managers, Section
Emergency Coordinators and served agencies at the national level such
as FEMA, National VOAD and the National Weather Service, sharing
information about preparedness efforts in the storm's path. Right now,
like most, we are keeping alert, monitoring the changing conditions and
waiting to see where Earl goes. We're also keeping an eye on other
storms developing in the Atlantic -- Fiona and Gaston a threat." Read

==> + ARRL LEADERSHIP: ARRL MEMBERS NOMINATE CANDIDATES FOR DIRECTOR,
VICE DIRECTOR

The policies of the ARRL are established by 15 Directors who are
elected to the Board on a geographical basis, with elections for
three-year terms held in five divisions each year. At the same time,
Vice Directors are elected on the same basis. Responding to
solicitations in the July and August issues of QST, ARRL members in the
Pacific, Rocky Mountain, Southeastern, Southwestern and West Gulf
Divisions have nominated 16 candidates for the 10 positions of Director
and Vice Director.

Five incumbents have been declared elected without opposition, while
there will be balloting for the Director position in the Southeastern,
Southwestern and West Gulf Divisions, and for the Vice Director
position in the Southeastern and West Gulf Divisions. Ballots will be
counted on Friday, November 19, 2010, and those elected will serve
three-year terms beginning at noon on January 1, 2011.

- In the Pacific Division, Bob Vallio, W6RGG, of Castro Valley,
California -- as the only nominee for Director -- was declared
re-elected, as was Vice Director Jim Tiemstra, K6JAT, of Oakland,
California.
- Current Rocky Mountain Director Division Brian Mileshosky, N5ZGT, of
Albuquerque, New Mexico, was unopposed for the position of Rocky
Mountain Division Director, so he is declared re-elected. Vice Director
Dwayne Allen, WY7FD, of Devils Tower, Wyoming, was also declared
re-elected.
- Having no opponent, incumbent Southwestern Division Vice Director
Marty Woll, N6VI, of Chatsworth, California, was also declared
re-elected. Read more here

==> + ON THE AIR: NEW D-STAR REPEATER NOW IN PLACE IN ARRL LABORATORY

The ARRL Lab has installed a D-STAR (Digital Smart Technologies for
Amateur Radio) repeater in the Lab at the ARRL Headquarters building.
Operating with an output of 147.390 MHz, positive offset, the W1HQ
D-STAR repeater is a local repeater with a modest footprint covering
the Hartford-New Britain, Connecticut area. The antenna is on the roof
of the Headquarters building with the repeater located in the Lab. With
its gateway, the repeater is accessible to any D-STAR user on the
planet. The Lab's call sign is W1INF.

"The purpose of the repeater is to better educate the Lab staff on
D-STAR technology," explained ARRL Test Engineer Bob Allison, WB1GCM.
"In turn, we will have the ability to handle some of our members'
questions on the matter. We also intend to use this new technology when
emergencies occur where D-STAR technology is deployed." Read more here

==> + ON THE AIR: DISCOVER THE FUN OF 6 METERS (AND UP!) IN THE ARRL
SEPTEMBER VHF QSO PARTY

September is here, and according to ARRL Contest Branch Manager Sean
Kutzko, KX9X, that means the VHF bands are getting a workout: "If
you've never experienced the fun of VHF+ operating, the ARRL September
VHF QSO Party is a great place to start. With many HF radios now
offering at least 6 meter SSB/CW capabilities -- and some offering 2
meters and 70 cm as well -- any amateur with a Technician class license
or higher can experience long-haul communication on the VHF bands."

==> + FCC: NEW RULES FOR EMPLOYEE PARTICIPATION IN DRILLS BEGIN
SEPTEMBER 3

Beginning September 3, the new, revised wording of Section 97.113
<http://edocket.access.gpo.gov/cfr_2002/octqtr/pdf/47cfr97.117.pdf>;
goes into effect. As of this date, the FCC will permit government
entities that sponsor disaster and emergency drills to hold these
drills without applying for a waiver. Additionally, employees who wish
to participate in non-government-sponsored drills and exercises may do
so under certain conditions. Part 97 is the portion of the Commission's
rules that govern the Amateur Radio Service. Read more here

==> + FCC: FCC REAFFIRMS 2×2 CALL SIGNS ARE ONLY FOR ADVANCED, AMATEUR
EXTRA LICENSE CLASSES

In May 2010, John Gottschalk, KB1DDK, of Westwood, Massachusetts,
requested a new call sign via the FCC's vanity call sign program.
Gottschalk, a General class licensee, requested KK1CQ -- a 2×2 call
sign -- and a waiver from the Commission allowing him to hold the call
sign. The FCC denied both requests on Tuesday, August 31, 2010. Read

Tad "We turn the Sun away
<http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/As_Summer_into_Autumn_slips>"; Cook,

Group 1101 was already in place since August 24, group 1102 emerged on
August 29, and on September 1, new sunspot groups 1103 and 1104
appeared. From August 26-September 1, the daily sunspot number was 23,

size of all the sunspot groups in millionths of a solar hemisphere was
100, 100, 130, 170, 180, 220 and 270. The average daily sunspot numbers
rose more than 17 points to 25.4, when compared to the previous seven

conditions, but they calmed down to quiet levels again. Predicted solar
flux for the next 12 days is 76, 76, 77, 76, 75, 75, 74, 74, 76, 78, 80
