After (hopefully) a relaxing summer, the ARA has returned to a two meeting per month schedule. Please join us for the activities meeting this coming Tuesday, when Steve will explain the statisical stats of Field Day 2019.
I hope that everyone is checking their rigs and antennas to be sure these parts work good! Why? The second full weekend of September. Begins 1800 UTC Saturday and runs through 0259 UTC Monday (September 14-16, 2019).
Bands-All authorized frequencies above 50 MHz (6 Meters).
Mode - Any mode, ssb, fm, am, digital ......
Objective: For amateurs in the US and Canada (and their possessions) to work as many amateur stations in as many different 2 degrees x 1 degree Maidenhead grid squares as possible using authorized frequencies above 50 MHz. Stations outside the US & Canada (and their possessions) may only work stations in the US (and its possessions) and Canada.
Lowe's Home Improvement Center is hosting the 2019 Washington County Emergency Preparedness event -- We are hoping for a great turnout by all of amateur radio operators, from ARA members and non-members alike.
