My Apologies in advance, this is off topic, however this is an important election, Mike was part of our team that spoke with Rep. Pete King on HR 607, thank you.  WB2OQQ


I am supporting Mike Lisenco N2YBB for the position of Hudson Division Director. Mike has a long history of service to the Amateur Radio community. He is currently the Section Manager for the New York City/Long Island Section.

Mike has demonstrated that he understands both the hobby and the service aspects of Amateur Radio. He is an active ham who participates in Emergency Communications. He was an ARES District and Section Emergency Coordinator and a RACES Radio Officer. He also enjoys operating in contests, chasing DX, and just plain ragchewing.

His extensive field experience gives him the knowledge base to understand the policies that need to be instituted by the ARRL. I believe he will bring new ideas and a fresh approach to the League. He listens to the opinions of the membership and incorporates their ideas into his plans

There are 15 Directors in the ARRL. Their purpose is to develop policy that affects all hams for years to come. Leadership from the Hudson Division Director is crucial to the future success of Amateur Radio. . I know that Mike is strong enough to represent the interests of the Hudson Division in Newington. He has the time and the ability to best represent all of us. In my opinion, he is the right choice for the job.

It is important that you vote. Starting October 1 balloting will be open for ARRL Hudson Division Director for those who have an email address on file with ARRL. You will receive instructions on how to vote electronically. Paper ballots will be mailed for those ARRL members who don't have an email on file.

Join me in voting for Mike N2YBB when balloting begins next week. If you would like more info about Mike, go to his website www.hudsonhams.com

73, Pete
