The Fort Wayne Radio Club’s planned operation for this Saturday’s Indiana QSO party will not be taking place due to a lack of response to join us. However, we will now switch to plan “B” which goes as follows:
All hams with HF capability are requested to operate in the QSO party as much as they can, keep good logs, and submit them to the Hoosier DX club with Fort Wayne Radio Club clearly listed as their club affiliation. In that way, we will accumulate all the points earned by everyone for the club total. Hey, it worked before, in 2012, and the club ended up with a nice plaque and bragging rights because of it!!
And no excuses, you technician class operators! Techs have privileges on 10 meter SSB and 80,40 15, and 10 meter CW in the Novice sections of those bands, so don’t be left out!
With the New England QSO party, the Delaware QSO party, and the W7 QSO party on the same day, that gives 40 percent of the country doing a contest! Work toward WAS!
Also coming up this Sunday is the FWRC May Fox Hunt. It will begin at 1:30 pm at the Carrington Field parking lot, next to the old K-Mart on Coliseum Blvd. This will be our first “Ride Along” Fox Hunt, so if you are interested in Fox Hunting, this is the time to give it a try!
