PCARS Contesters and DXers:
Greetings:
Our DX/Contesting Special Interest Group meeting will be held at our Club Site on Tuesday, May 24, 2022 at 7 PM. This one will be a little different and we hope logistically will be a real interesting meeting.
The Mercer County Amateur Radio Club will be holding their meeting at the same time and their program fits into our interests so well that we thought we would join them on ZOOM and attend their meeting.
The Keynote speakers will be Editor of the Daily DX and noted DXer, Bernie McClenny W3UR and longtime DX operator Rol Anders, K3RA  They will present “DX—Working the World” with “History and Tips for Working ‘em” at 7:30 PM.
So we will gather at the club site at 7PM and have a brief in house meeting and then dial in to their meeting and see what Bernie and Rol have to say. For those of you who will not be attending in person, you can find both ZOOM log ins below. You can log in to our brief meeting first and then log out and log into the MCARC meeting or you can simply wait until 7:30 and log into their meeting.
We trust that this will be a very informative meeting. Hope to see many at the club and on line.
The Zoom ID for the Mercer meeting is: 563685301 with Password: 73.
