Congratulations to Matt (KD2MLR) and Tiernan (KD2OOC) of the Pioneer Amateur Radio Club (W2WPU) recognized recently for their hurricane disaster relief work on Vieques Island (Puerto Rico). They have been part of William Paterson University's civic engagement project working with college station WPSC/Brave New World. Seeing the need for reliable communication, Matt has taken the lead in procuring amateur radio equipment for the island, helping with a disaster relief plan and helping to create an island-wide network using amateur radio.
They will be returning to the island in June to further assist. Great work by the Pioneer team and giving wide exposure to amateur radio to the William Paterson community.
