As you probably know, we have been had lots of Club On The Air Operating time recently and in the past. Our club has a long history of operating excellence and we felt that it would be a good idea to add a page to our website to share our activities and some recognition that we’ve earned as a result.
You can check out the new page here or you can access it from the “Our Activities” menu on our website. We expect that this page will expand as we continue our long tradition of operating on the bands. We hope that you enjoy the new page.
We have set some goals for ourselves in this area for the next few months.
We just recently completed our entry in the ARRL Rookie Roundup RTTY contest and we are planning to enter the CW Rookie Roundup this fall. If can continue to operate hard and have some luck, we are hoping to take home the top honors in Area 1 in all three of these contests for 2016!
As you can see from our new page, we have earned an ARRL Worked All States Award for the N1FD call sign. We have a WAS in the SSB and CW modes but we are a few states short in the DIGITAL modes. Confirming all 50 in DIGITAL modes would earn the club a WAS Triple Play award.
Finally, we are close to earning an ARRL DXCC for our club. We are considering a High-power Multi-op entry for the N1FD call sign in one of the major worldwide DX contest in an effort to put N1FD over the top for a DXCC award. This operation will be open to all of our club members and will most likely be run from Anita’s and my station here in Hollis. Stay tuned for more on these plans here.
