Talk-in: 147.210 MHz 100Hz tone

*** WHAT ***
We'll be running a 3A station this year in order to make sure we have plenty of opportunities for others to get on a radio. This year we will have:
Station 1: CW and Digital station; Morse code, PSK31, etc. Digital modes are easy to pick up.
Station 2: Phone (single-sideband); casual operation, "hunt and pounce"
Station 3: Phone (single-sideband); more intense operation by "running a frequency" (after you feel ready from being on Station 2)
GOTA Station: the "get on the air" station for new hams and non-hams; bring your friends!
VHF Station: working 6-meter, 2-meter, etc. These bands could really open up during the event! Or maybe not. But don't miss out in case they do!

Please sign up for an hour or more on Station 1/2/3 by contacting or We'll get you a slot. You can also sign up at the site, though Craig is actively recruiting operators for Station 3.

*** MANY HANDS ... ***
Many hands make light work. Please consider helping us with set up and tear down this year. This is a great way to learn about many aspects of ham radio. And we could really use the help!

*** FOOD ***
We will have some food there (hot dogs, hamburgers, water) but please consider bringing something to share. We plan to use the grill on site.

Send any questions you have to

Hope to see you there!
