Club Contest

We will be having a 2m simplex contest from 7:00 pm until 9:00 pm on Saturday September 20. The idea is to make as many contacts as possible on 2m simplex during that time. The exchange is the call sign and name. Certificates for most verified contacts will be awarded for low power (10w or under) and high power (over 10w). Contestants can participate from their QTH, mobile or pedestrian mobile. Be sure to include your power category along with your logs. Submit your logs by October 20 to:

Have fun and good luck

Gran Fondo

Frederick ARES and the Frederick Amateur Radio Club will again be providing
communications support for the Gran Fondo Bike Race this year on August
24th. We need operators with a mobile or HT 2M rig willing to man the four
checkpoints (timing stations) during this event. Operations will be the same
as last year, and you can go to http://ridewithgps.com/routes/1363618 for
the times and locations (click on the green icons). Plan on using either the
MADXRA or FARG repeater systems.

While Gran Fondo isn’t a “non-profit” organization, we got a nice donation
from them which was then donated to the MADXRA group for the maintenance of
their repeater system.

For the locations with longer hours, we will try and limit the shifts to 4
hours. As always, you don’t have to be a member of ARES, FARC, or MADXRA –
just a ham willing to lend a hand.

Please let me know if you’re available. Thanks.

73,
Jeff Fishman KB3FIO
