ARRL Rookie Roundup Operating

N1FD Multi-Op Entry in the Rookie Roundup CW

The N1FD Contest Team operated in the final Rookie Roundup of the year – the ARRL Rookie Roundup CW.  Jamey, KC1ENX and Abby KC1FFX operated as a Multi-Op team using the N1FD callsign at the QTH of AB1OC and AB1QB.

The CW contest proved to be a great way to improve the CW skills of the rookies as well as the Elmers!  It was the perfect follow-on to the Morse Code Class held earlier this year.

Abby and Jamey made a total of 21 QSOs in the contest, including one with another rookie from Alberta, Canada.  Most of the activity was on the 20m band with a few contacts on 40m.

We all had a great time in the contest and are looking forward to working another CW contest soon.

We’re also looking forward to the next Rookie Roundup, the SSB contest which will be on April 17.  We invite all of the new hams in the club to join us for the SSB version of the contest.

Anita, AB1QB
