ARRL JANUARY VHF CONTEST SET FOR JANUARY 19-21

Please plan on participating to help the Club's score in the ARRL January VHF Contest, beginning 1900 UTC Saturday Jan. 20 (1 p.m. Saturday CST)
and ending 0359 UTC Monday Jan. 22 (10 p.m. Sunday).
There are various entry categories - full information is available on the ARRL web site. Logging can be done via computer using any of the popular contesting software such as N3FJP, CT, etc. Paper logs may also be submitted - we will have forms available at the January Club meeting.
Even if you can only operate for a short time, with a modest station, every little bit helps the Club aggregate  core - please participate as much as you can!
Due to a rules change in 2016, 146.52 simplex is now available for contesting, and can also be used during Field Day! Other simplex frequencies such as 146.55 can still be used
- suggestion - look for members on 146.55 at the hour and half hour.
Complete rules and regulations are available on the
ARRL web site, www.arrl.org
