We will be hosting a multi-op entry using the club callsign, N1FD from the AB1OC/AB1QB QTH.  Help us defend our title from last year as #1 Multi-Op Area 1.  This is an opportunity to get on the HF bands if you just got your license and don’t have a station setup yet, or a chance to get some practice if you want to try running some pile-ups before Field Day.

If you have never operated from our station before, we will hold an elmering session on Saturday, April 15 from 2 pm – 4 pm, also at our QTH.

Details are on our club calendar.

If you are interested, contact Anita, AB1QB to sign up at activities@n1fd.org.
