The recovery efforts in Puerto Rico have largely cycled out of the news media, but residents are still struggling in the wake of this fall’s devastating hurricane damage. In order to help radio amateurs and radiosport enthusiasts in Puerto Rico get back on the air, the World Wide Radio Operators Foundation (WWROF) has announced the KP4 Generator Project, which will raise funds to purchase Honda eu2000i generators for the radio amateurs of Puerto Rico.
Well-known contester Angel Vazquez, WP3R, will distribute these generators to active radio amateurs on the island for use in emergency-related communication and other applications, based on local need.
The WWROF will match the first $5,000 in donations from clubs and individuals to the KP4 Generator Project. WWROF is an IRS 501(c)(3) organization, and donations are tax-deductible for US taxpayers to the extent allowed by law.
