March marks the first month of contesting from the K8BF club site. We will be participating in the Idaho and Wisconsin QSO Parties. This will take place on March 14 & 15. And because of the way we keep UTC time, it will actually go into March16 even though locally it will still be March 15.
The Idaho event is a 24 hour contest from 1900Z to 1900Z starting on the 14th. However, we will not be participating in the full 24 hours. The Wisconsin event will take place starting at 1800Z on the 15th and ending at 0100Z on the 16th. That’s 2PM to 9PM on Sunday March 15th.
In order to have some lead in to these two events, I’d like to have those who would like to operate that weekend, meet with me at 6PM on Tuesday, March 10th. We will go over the rules for each event and get a tentative schedule of ops that will be at the club site. And since we will be meeting at 6PM we will be out of the way for the QRP/CW SIG that would be meeting at 7PM that evening.
We will also be using this weekend event as well as one other that comes before Field Day as training exercises for ops and loggers so that they are better able to operate during our Field Day effort.
I apologize to all of you who use the Radiogram to remind you what might be happening during the month. I missed getting the Contest announcement to Parky so that he could get it in the Newsletter.
I hope to see a lot of you at 6PM on the 10th.
