If you ever needed an excuse to get on HF, here are two great, upcoming opportunities to GET ON THE AIR in June!
2015 Alabama QSO Party
Saturday, June 6, from 11:00 AM CST (1600 UTC) to 11:00 PM CST (June 7 0400 UTC)
Come join in on the fun as hams from all over the great State of Alabama occupy the HF bands for the 2015 Alabama QSO Party. Whether you are a single- or multi-operator, operating CW and/or SSB, from a fixed, portable, or mobile station, at QRP, low power, or full legal limit, we need as many Alabamians as we can get to participate in this year’s event. Participants in the Alabama QSO Party are limited to the 10m through 160 meter bands (excluding WARC bands – 60/30/17/12m). More information and the all important rules are located at www.AlabamQSOparty.org.
Don’t have an HF station, yet? No problem! The Wiregrass Amateur Radio Club (WARC) will be participating as a Club Station, again this year. WARC will operate from their Club Station, W4DHN, located in the American Red Cross Building, located at 1004 Montezuma Avenue, in Dothan, Alabama. So, come on out and join us for a half hour, and hour, or the entire 12-hour period.
ARRL Field Day 2015
Saturday, June 27, from 1:00 PM CST (1800 UTC) through Sunday, June 28, 1:00 PM CST (1800 UTC)
Don’t miss out on the single-most popular radio event of the year. The Wiregrass Amateur Radio Club (WARC) will participate in Field Day 2015 from the campus of Northside Methodist Academy, 2600 Redmond Road, in Dothan, Alabama.
Field Day is part educational event, part operating event, and part public relations event – but mostly, it’s ALL about FUN! So, come on out and join us. In fact, bring your family, your friends, and your neighbors to share in the excitement. Hope to see you there.
