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 the site administrator. 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. New Polar Bear numbers may not be issued within three days of a scheduled event.
This group has no affiliation with W3PBC which by all accounts should not be legally issued as this group does not meet FCC regulations 97.5(2) for Club Callsigns. Further, as of April 10, 2008 and through present day, WA3WSJ is not a part of this group and any claims otherwise are false. This is due to "unsportsman-like conduct and failure to act in proper PolarBear fashion."
(Disclaimer #1) Discussions are monitored and if you don't play nice you will be "moderated" or worse!
NOTE: This is NOT an episode of Survivor. Be aware of the weather conditions and act accordingly. 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.
