Join Us for the Rookie Roundup

All Club Members who quality as rookies are invited.  For this contest, a Rookie is any Amateur Radio Operator who has received their first license in 2015, 2016 or 2017 or a has never made a QSO using the CW mode.

This is a great opportunity for qualifying members including  graduates of our recent CW classes to get on the air.   The rookie operators in the contest are also new to CW and the rates are slow.  The non-rookies in the contest all operate at slow speeds to help elmer the rookies.
