Our beloved founder, Dr. Bob Heil, K9EID, is now a Silent Key. Bob fought a valiant, year-long battle with cancer, and passed peacefully surrounded by his family. Bob’s lifelong passion for amateur radio was clear to everyone involved in the hobby. Everything Bob did for the betterment and growth of amateur radio - from his instructional handbooks and countless presentations to his support of the ARRL and youth programs - was based on the foundation and spirit of service. Bob was an Elmer to all of us. While Bob’s presence will dearly be missed, his impact on the hobby and everyone in it will forever be felt. On behalf of Bob to all ham radio operators worldwide, 73.

We’re happy to announce that Dale Cole, K8TS, will be one of our guest speakers for the Elkhart East Hamfest & ARRL Central Division forums this year!

Dale had written a short blog in this year's February QST magazine page 24 titled "Ham Radio Estate Planning Resource".

Dale's club, Cascades Amateur Radio Society, invited Kevin Beal, K8EAl, ARRL's Director of Development, to a Zoom session to talk about a program Kevin’s working on to help guide family members who don't know what to do with the equipment afterwards.

Since then, Dale's taken notes from Kevin, K8EAI, and gathered information from Scott Freeberg, WA9WFA, "Why I sold 99% of My Ham Radio Collection" in the November 2023 issue of QST.

Dale will be presenting awareness to our guests about the care of your equipment afterward, ARRL's Estate Planning Workbook, and what to do with your callsign once becoming a Silent Key.

Additional information regarding this ARRL Forum will be posted as the date gets closer!
