Portage County Amateur Radio Service’s15th Anniversary Special Event

To celebrate this special 15th anniversary PCARS is going to have a Special Event Station. However it will be a bit different than the usual special event station considering this COVID-19 situation. Normally, we would meet at the club site on a Saturday and run the club site radios for about 12 hours as we have done with past PCARS special events. Well, we all know that is not going to happen this year. But, have no fear – this may be even MORE FUN for the PCARS members that participate.
Starting at 12:01 am on Saturday, November 7th and running until 11:59 pm on Sunday, November 15th – PCARS WILL be on the air – yes – for a whole week !
This is how the special event is listed on the ARRL site (and it will be in the December issue of QST which comes out in November prior to our special event:
