In onore dell'OM Zamberletti

ARI Nazionale -

In occasione del primo anniversario della scomparsa dell’Onorevole Giuseppe Zamberletti, il Comune di Varese, la Provincia di Varese e il Dipartimento della Protezione Civile sabato 25 gennaio 2020 organizzano una giornata in ricordo del padre fondatore della Protezione Civile.

La giornata prevede un convegno presso l’Università degli Studi dell’Insubria e una camminata lungo la Via Sacra fino al Sacro Monte, dove verrà inaugurata una lapide posta sulla casa natale di Giuseppe Zamberletti.

Un uomo, un varesino, un illustre protagonista delle Istuzioni, un esempio che ha lasciato un ricordo indelebile in tutta Italia. Certi che la città di Varese sarà per sempre grata a quest’uomo lungimirante che in situazioni di emergenza seppe vedere, e costruire, una Italia migliore, ci auguriamo che possiate prendere parte alle celebrazioni.

II3BIA, radioamatori al "Centro"

ARI Nazionale -

Diciamolo pure. Il 2019 non è stato un anno facile per la Sezione ARI di Brunico. Dopo le dimissioni di parte del Consiglio Direttivo si è rivotato a luglio per un nuovo Direttivo. Ma purtroppo anche il “nuovo” Direttivo non ha avuto vita lunga. A questo punto non rimaneva altro di avvalersi di radioamatori di indiscusse capacità e dotati di vero HAM spirit. E fu così che Hubert IN3AUJ, radioamatore di lunga data e Socio ARI (come si definisce lui stesso) da sempre, subentra al Consigliere dimissionario dando vita ad un nuovo organico in seno alla Sezione ARI di Brunico. Il nuovo Direttivo sarà quindi così composto: Karl Heinz IN3EIE Presidente, Hubert IN3AUJ Vicepresidente e Peter IN3RRX Segretario.

Da subito quindi è nata la voglia di proporre ai Soci qualcosa di “straordinario”. Qualcosa che metta “Al Centro” la vita radioamatoriale in Regione. Sfruttando l’onda mediatica dei “Campionati del Mondo Biatlon IBU 2020 che si svolgeranno ad Anterselva (BZ)” si è deciso di chiedere il rilascio di un nominativo speciale che desse lustro non solo alla manifestazione stessa ma anche a tutti noi che viviamo la passione per la radio. Dominik Windisch, Lukas Hofer, Gontier Nicole, Vitozzi Lisa e non per ultima la “principessa” Dorothea Wierer sono esponenti di massimo livello di questo fantastico sport. Convinti di potercela fare, e dopo alcune dritte dagli amici della Sezione ARI di Trento, abbiamo deciso di inviare il nostro fascicolo con la richiesta di rilascio di un nominativo speciale per una manifestazione radiantistica al MISE. Fiduciosi del nostro operato e pieni si speranza abbiamo ottenuto in data 11.11.2019 l’assegnazione del nominativo speciale II3BIA.
