Mark your calendar for November 18 and 19. That is the weekend for
the ARRL's Sweepstakes contest. We'll participate in the sideband
version of this annual contest. We'll use the W8ZHO call and hit the
push-to-talk starting at 4:00 pm on Saturday until either 1. we run
twenty-four hours or 2. we pull the plug at 10:00 pm on Sunday evening.
Everyone is welcome to drop in and operate, log, cheer, kibitz, or
whatever. We'll have tons of fun. Tom, W8AMZ has offered a HUGE pot
of Chile and we'll have something special for Sunday morning's
breakfast. Sunday lunch and dinner will be warmed over hot dogs and
So grab your sense of adventure and drop into our wonderful shack at
the MAARC's clubhouse. It will be tons of fun for everyone. There
will always be an open band, fun, radio, fun, QSOs, fun, and great
hams sharing a contest to remember.
Drop me a line with any questions. By the way, Chris, AB8WO says he
can operate and log without assistance. Should be quite the sight!
That is one really great reason to cheer!
