|Welcome to the WWW page for the NNJ
section of the ARRL Hudson Division. This site contains information useful to Amateur
Radio Operators in the Northern NJ area.
The NNJ Section of the ARRL's Hudson Division includes a 12 county area in New Jersey's northern region.
- There are many ham
radio clubs in the NNJ section. They hold regular meetings and are eager to welcome
new members to their ranks. Many have licensing classes including those for beginners and
even more offer license examinations.
- Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES): The
NNJ Section has a Section Emergency Coordinator (SEC) and each county has a District
Emergency Coordinator (DEC). The SEC coordinates with their counterparts in adjacent
sections in case of natural or man-made disasters. SKYWARN,
a joint program between the National Weather Service (NWS) and Amateur Radio Emergency
Service, trains radio amateurs to observe and report severe weather conditions. This
allows radio amateurs to assist the NWS to warn the public of weather-related threats to
life and property.
- Many NNJ Clubs hold regular
events like hamfests including ham flea markets, booths manned by ham radio equipment
and software manufacturers' representatives and informative seminars. Often, exam sessions
are also available to obtain new licenses or upgrade existing licenses.
- The Section
Leadership consists of the Section Manager (SM), the Section Traffic Manager (STM),
the Section Emergency Coordinator (SEC), the Affiliated Club Coordinator (ACC), the Public
Information Officer/Bulletin Manager (PIO/BM), the Official Observer Coordinator (OOC),
the Section Government Liaison (SGL) and the four Assistant Section Managers (ASM's)
