* "AmExpo" to spotlight Amateur Radio at major airshow: Amateur Radio
special event station N2M will be on the air May 1 and 2 in conjunction
with the annual Millville Wheels & Wings Airshow in New Jersey. "AmExpo
commemorates the advancement of radio communications conducted at this
location during World War II," says Hugh McElroy, W2AVN, who's chairman of
the board of directors for the Millville army Air Field Museum. McElroy
calls the special event "a celebration of radio and technology" during the
airshow, which annually attracts upward of 150,000 visitors. Vintage and
modern radio gear will be available, and multiple Amateur Radio clubs are
providing operators. "We wish to invite all radio amateurs and radio
enthusiasts to attend and enjoy this thrilling event," McElroy said. "Our
goal is to foster Amateur Radio and to generate new radio amateurs." He
says the N2M will be an all-band Field Day-style operation that will
include VoIP modes such as EchoLink as well as satellite communication.
