This is an amateur radio group who are active with portable QRP operation during the winter months (late fall to early spring) during the weekend closest to the Full Moon, what we call Polar Bear Moonlight Madness. This is a "closed group" meaning that to view most of the content herein you need to be a member of the group. Anyone can be a member of this group without having a Polar Bear number. If you would like to participate in our activities such as Polar Bear Moonlight Madness Events and would like a Polar Bear Number to identify your white fur status please contact NK8Q. Issuing of a Polar Bear Number requires that you either have previously been or are now active within the spirit of the objectives of PBMME, oh, and to have fun! New Polar Bear numbers will not be issued within three days of a scheduled event.
(start disclaimer #1) Discussions are monitored and if you don't play nice you will be "moderated" or worse (end disclaimer #1).
NOTE: This is a fun activity, NOT an episode of Survivor. Be aware of the temperature and the possibility of cold injury! PLEASE be careful. Polar Bear activities can be dangerous and nobody in this group can be held liable for accidents or injuries associated with this group. Remember, be safe, be prepared, and have fun!
Please promote our group to those who you think would make good members of this group and be active!
73 and Grrrrrrrrr!
