March 9th, 12pm - 3pm, MUD QSO Party

All Union County Members:

 
I hope you will participate in our third annual MUD (Madison, Union, Delaware county) QSO Party on Saturday March 9th, from Noon to 3 pm.  

 
Last year's event was a big success, with a record number of contacts made between the members of our three clubs.  I'm hoping for even greater participation this year.   

This will be a fun 'VHF and up' contact event to meet our neighboring club members on the air.  In this event, you can...
  • Work from home, or go mobile / portable if you like.
  • Contact anyone in any location (including within DELARA) but the main goal is to meet members of the Madison and Union county clubs.
  • Make contacts via FM Simplex on various bands - so see how far out you can reach with your station.
  • Use any of our 3 club repeaters to make contacts (work the same station again, and log another contact)
  • Try any simplex mode - FM, SSB, AM or digital voice modes (DMR, DSTAR, Fusion).
  • Any mode or band 6m and up is allowed, but the suggested frequencies / modes should help improve your chances of making a contact.
  • Submit a log, and compete on points for awards (optional, but encouraged).
The rules and logging process are not yet finalized.   There won't be much change from last year.   Look for those details to follow next week.
