FW: Arrived at VP9

Hello PCARS – SPECIAL DX CONTEST NOTICE

 
Break out the digital (RTTY) gear and get on the air this weekend during the CQ-World-Wide RTTY Contest.
 
Our own PCARS Treasurer – George, K3GP will be on the air from Bermuda in the contest using the callsign VP9I.
 
If you’re lucky, before or after the contest, you may get a shot at contacting VP9/K3GP – that’s the callsign he is allowed to use for personal use.

Net Night at the Club Site

This week, Thursday (9/26), is "Net Night" at the Club Site.  Come on out and spend the evening with us.  Dave – WB2DFC, will be NCS for the PCARS net.  Amy – KD8SKL, will be providing Root Beer Floats as a way of saying our final "good bye" to summer!  We'll have another ham radio trivia contest that could earn you a couple tickets in the next 50/50 raffle at the October club meeting.  Hey, you can check into the net while you're there, and even work some Q's on HF!  Hope to see you there.  Doors will open approximately 6:30 PM and we'll be open to 10:30 PM or later, depending on how short a leash I'm on that night…..
