Frederick ARES and the Frederick Amateur Radio Club will be participating in this weekend’s Maryland DC QSO Party from our new station location at the Frederick County American Red Cross Chapter House in Walkersville. This is located at 2 East Frederick Street in Walkersville, MD. Talk in will be provided on 146.640 PL 156.7.
We will have at least 2 station positions (HF and VHF) in operation, and operators are needed. Any licensed ham may participate.
The contest goes from noon to midnight on Sat., and noon to 8 PM on Sun. Due to some scheduling issues, we anticipate starting at approx. 2:30 PM on Sat., and operating as long as we have operators. Sat. is the primary operations day and the Sun. schedule depends on sign-ups and building availability. It is quite likely that someone will be there for us, starting at noon on Saturday.
This is a “fun contest” and definitely not as hard-core as Field Day. We will certainly be making lots of contacts as hams who contact our “club” station get extra credit.

Please let me know if you would like to participate. Thanks.
