4. ARRL Audio News Returns

Effective May 27, after a hiatus of nearly four months, the ARRL

5. Battle Harbour

Right here in Canada there is a site begging for a few devoted,
adventurous ham operators and it has not one but two towers.
Battle Harbour is an island off the southeast shore of Labrador. It
is a National Historic District operated by the Battle Harbour
Historic Trust.

Neil Galloway, VE3VNG, describes the location and its history in an
article on the ARRL Web page.  You can read it at
tinyurl.com/3xgccyc (Three Xray Golf Charlie Charlie Yankee Charlie)
Or read more about the island at www.battleharbour.com
