ARRL Sweepstakes on Phone:

November 19th and 20th 2016 - the club will be participating in the ARRL Sweepstakes Phone Contest. We will man the club's station for the full time of the contest (if we can get enough operator participation).

The objectives of this contest are for stations in the United States and Canada (including territories and possessions) to exchange QSO information with as many other US and Canadian stations as possible on 160, 80, 40, 20, 15 and 10 meter bands. The contest period begins 2100 UTC Saturday and runs through 0259 UTC Monday.

National Weather Service and ARRL Skywarn Recognition Day:

SKYWARN Recognition Day was developed in 1999 by the National Weather Service and the American Radio Relay League. It celebrates the contributions that volunteer SKYWARN radio operators make to the National Weather Service. During the day SKYWARN operators visit NWS offices and contact other radio operators across the world. We have been invited to use the NWS MAF facility for this event. This year the Skywarn Recognition Day will take place on December 3, 2016, from 0000z to 2400z. We usually set up two stations in the conference room.

ARRL 10 Meter Contest:

December 10th and 11th 2016 - The objective is for Amateurs worldwide to exchange QSO information with as many stations as possible on the 10 meter band. Second full weekend of December. The contest starts at 0000 UTC Saturday and runs through 2359 UTC Sunday.
