The Tennessee Amateur Radio Relay League is comprised of numerous amateur radio enthusiasts who work together to make radio communication a better, and more enjoyable pastime for everyone involved.




 Here is your ARRL Tennessee Section Update for March 1, 2021.

While we are seeing some hamfest cancellations due to Covid, we do have
several scheduled to go on as planned. The MTARS Tullahoma hamfest will
be on March 13 at the Waggoner Memorial Park, 1300 East Carroll Street
in Tullahoma, TN.  The Sevier County Amateur Radio Society's 8th
annual hamfest will be on March 27 at the Sevier County Fairgrounds on
Old Knoxville Highway in Sevierville. The Andrew Johnson Amateur Radio
Club's hamfest will be on April 17, 2021 at the Greene County
Fairgrounds in Greeneville, TN. Be sure to check the TN Section website,, for the latest hamfest calendar. 

I was at the Dalton, GA hamfest last Saturday and had the opportunity to
speak with the chairman of the Huntsville Hamfest. They are going
full-steam ahead with their hamfest in August and are looking forward to
a big crowd. If you're planning on going, you might want to go ahead
and book your room now as nearby hotels sell out quickly. 

SEDCO's annual W4DXCC convention has been set for September 24 and 25,
2021 in Pigeon Forge, TN. For more information, visit their website

Our thoughts are with former Tennessee Section Manager Keith Miller,
N9DGK. Keith slipped and fell at home and broke some bones during the
recent snow storm that hit middle TN. He is recovering now with the help
of physical therapy and should make a full recovery. Get well soon,

West TN Assistant Section Manager Tom Vickers (N4TV) was hospitalized
recently, but is back home recovering now. Get well soon, Tom!

If you are an ARES member in the Eastern Tennessee area, your assistance
is needed at an event coming up on July 19. The Special Operations Radio
Team (SORT) is working with the National Competitive Training Conference
in Gatlinburg to establish and operate a special event station. This
will be a Field Day type of operation. ARES participation is being
coordinated by the Sevier County ARES EC Cletus Grissom (KN4EIG). If you
are available to assist, please get in touch with him by email

Well, that's all the news for now. Look for more reports about
what's happening throughout the TN section in the upcoming first
quarter edition of the TN Section PIC Newsletter, coming out later this
month. We are running late with this edition because our Section PIC
Dale Knight (AB4DK) has been recovering from the Covid-19 virus.
