MARC to participate in VHF Contest

grid map

Listen for us on 50, 144, 222, 432 MHz - QRZ ?

For MARC’s first operating event in recent history, this upcoming VHF Contest should provide enough action to demonstrate our basic communications capability… This also presents our new club with an opportunity to get together and work as a team to bring the club station back to life. This event starts Saturday after lunch, and runs thru Sunday evening about 10pm. It is not likely that someone will be at the station during all the wee hours of the night, but if band conditions are good, and the operators are enthusiastic – someone may be there. Come by and check it out if you can. We always try to monitor the 147.100 repeater while at the station. With any luck we will also have at least enough internet connection to update the twitter feed. Lets hope for some good E-Skip on 6 meters, and some good tropo-ducting on Sunday morning.
See you on the bands ..!..
