Last month, amateur radio operators throughout North Americaand Europe commemorated the 70th anniversary of "D-Day" by duplicating the beachhead communications of the invasion.  Among the participants was Woburn resident and amateur radio operator Dennis Kenney, who is a member of the U.S. Army’s Military Auxiliary Radio System (MARS).  Despite a lightning strike near his home during the exercise, Kenny was able to return to the air.  The "D-Day" drill was quite competitive, with operators seeking European and U.S. contacts during the communications drill.  Kenney tied for 11th place out of 82 participants.  Congratulations to all participants for commemorating a day the changed the history of Europe.  Aloha de Russ (KH6JRM).
