CQ PRESS RELEASE. Rich, W2VU, sent out the following on March 19th:
Tony Emanuele, WA8RJF, has been named VHF Editor of CQ Amateur Radio
magazine, Editor Rich Moseson, W2VU, announced today.
Emanuele succeeds Joe Lynch, N6CL, who stepped down after 22 years
as VHF Editor to devote his full energies to his new position as Director
of Religious Education for the United States Military Academy at West
Point, New York. Lynch's final column appears in the March/April, 2014,
issue of CQ. Emanuele will begin writing the "VHF Plus" column as of the
June issue.
A ham for nearly 50 years, Emanuele has been active on VHF and above
for the past 30 years, enjoys building equipment and has operated on all
bands from 6 meters to 47 GHz. His overriding goal for the column, he
says, will be to "help promote activity on 2 meters and above."
"The hobby is undergoing a change," notes Tony. " As much as we enjoy
the activities and methods that we employ today and in the past, we must
be mindful of what will attract new people to amateur radio and speci-
fically to VHF and above."
"I am looking forward to working with Tony," says Moseson. "We share
very similar philosophies about the importance of VHF and UHF in the
overall ham radio hobby, and about the role of CQ's VHF Plus column in
promoting activity on the higher frequencies."
Professionally, Emanuele is Sales Engineer/Sales Manager for a specialty
LCD company. He lives in Painesville, Ohio.

VK9M, MELLISH REEF (Update #2). On March 20th, the following was posted
from Mackay Australia [edited]:
VK9MT Update #2 -- Please use as you require:
1. The Advance Team arrived in Mackay on March 18th - 19th. After many
connections and over 30 hours of plane / layover time from EU and US
we finally arrived at hotel.
2. Next morning we met the owner of the receiving firm and began the
task of inventorying the shipments and opening the crates and barrels.
3. We spent the better part of two days at shops around Mackay buying
items we thought too expensive to ship round trip from the US and EU.
4. The boat arrived from Dunedin, New Zealand, on the 17th and we visited
with the skipper and crew. We have a parking pass and access key for
the marina so we're loading the the boat in small loads rather than
hiring a trucking firm to bring everything at once. The crew has been
very helpful with the loading process.
5. Other team members will be arriving over the next few days.
6. Today, in between rain showers, we will test the generators, assemble
antennas that we received directly from SteppIR and make final tuning
adjustments to the folding hex beams that we were unable to do in the
US because of the cold and snow.

The people we've met in Mackay at the various firms we visited have all
be very helpful, offering us assistance as we require.
Next update in a few days..... 73, Team Mellish 2014"
