2. Distribution of InfoLine
There are three ways to receive Infoline:
1 – You can go on our main distribution list, and have a copy emailed to you directly on publication day. To get onto this list, go to the NZART web page at:
Select “SUBSCRIBE TO HQ INFOLINE EMAIL” and fill out your name in the email, then press send. Note the process from there is manual, a human (the webmaster) reads the email and sets you up on the list – this will happen sometime in the next 2 – 3 days, and you will receive a subscription email confirming your membership of the list.
2 – If you would prefer to receive your Infoline as an attached PDF (rather than text within an email message), you can subscribe to a separate list, again through the NZART web page at:
and click on “SUBSCRIBE TO HQ INFOLINE ATTACHED PDF”. This will also generate an email, and the different subject line will be acted upon by the webmaster.
3 – For those who don’t want their Infoline by email, or may have missed a past issue, all Infolines are published on the NZART web page at:
Each issue for the current year appears in a column on the right side of your screen. Note that publishing Infoline on the web is also a human process, so while it usually occurs within 1 day of issue, sometimes other factors delay this for a few days.
Infolines back to 2011 are available in this list, then earlier issues (back to 2001) are available in an archive shown within the same list.
If you want to be removed from an email list, go to the join page at:
and click on the “UNSUBSCRIBE-FROM-HQ-INFOLINE” link – remember to ensure you send your request from the actual email address you are receiving Infoline on, or mention within the text any alternative email addresses you may be receiving Infoline from.
If you want to send something to the Infoline editor, please sent to email@example.com (also available on the web page at http://www.nzart.org.nz/h-quarter/infoline/), please don’t reply to the Infoline message you have received, as that will just go back to the list administrator, not to the editor of Infoline. If you have a concern about something published in an issue of Infoline, it is better to contact your local councilor (listed at http://www.nzart.org.nz/council/positions/council/) or NZART HQ, contact details are at http://www.nzart.org.nz/h-quarter/contact-us/
3. Amateur Radio Roundtable
From time to time, InfoLine has carried a promo? for Amateur Radio Roundtable.
These are a weekly occurrence and as you know, HQIL is fortnightly (generally) so for this HQIL I thought I should provide an extract from the ARRL website that introduces the ‘Roundtable’ and provides a link to W5KUB’s website so that you may establish your own direct link to these weekly forums.
Amateur Radio Roundtable Offers Live, Weekly Ham Radio Discussions
TAGS: Amateur Radio Roundtable, aspects, Digital Modes, emergency communications, Google Hangout, guests, ham radio, Home Brewing, LIVE EVENTS, live webcast, program suggestions, question-and-answer session, sdr, Tom Medlin, utc, wide range
Tom Medlin, W5KUB, has launched Amateur Radio Roundtable, a new series of live, weekly webcasts on his website, Tuesdays at 0100 UTC. The March 17 edition will feature Mike Kalter, W8CI, of Dayton Hamvention fame; Bharathi Prasad, VU2RBI, and Gary Yohe, AJ4GL, as guests.
“Amateur Radio Roundtable is an informal discussion of all aspects of ham radio, with the intent of allowing viewers to watch this live webcast or be a guest via Skype or Google Hangout,” Medlin explained. “A question-and-answer session with viewers will follow each topic. The show covers all aspects of ham radio; such as, balloon launches, satellites, go kits, emergency communications, SDR, digital modes, DXing, home brewing, and much more.”
To join Amateur Radio Roundtable, visit the W5KUB.com website, click on “Live Events,” and sign in. During the last half of the roundtable, viewer are invited to make virtual appearances on the show. Guests will need a Google+ account, microphone, and camera. A link allowing you to join will be provided during the show.
“This part of the show is very informal,” Medlin said. “You can just pop in to say hello, or stay a while and join in on a wide range of topics. Google Hangout will allow up to 10 people at a time.”
Medlin invites program suggestions. There’s more information on the W5KUB.com Facebook page. — Tom Medlin, W5KUB
