ARRL JANUARY VHF CONTEST RESULTS

The weekend of the ARRL January VHF Sweepstakes, January 19-20, was cold and snowy, with
seemingly less activity than last year in the Chicagoland area.  Nevertheless, several of our members did what they could to create some activity in our area - Mike,
WD9GJK had the best score reported from our club - nice job, Mike!

And a big “Thank You!”
to all of our members who were able to contribute to our overall  Club score.
SMCC RECEIVES REQUESTS FOR HELP AT UPCOMING EVENTS

Our Club has received requests again this year for assistance with two popular activities: Hinsdale's Walk For Autism and La Grange Park's Run For The Roses. Hinsdale's walk will take place on Sunday, April 28, following the same route as it did in 2018. Since we will be just several blocks from our two meter repeater site, all communication can be easily accomplished via our two meter system, 146.37/.97.

In La Grange Park, the Run For The Roses has been moved to Sunday morning, May 19, also following the same route as last year. We usually use 145.580 Simplex for communications at this event.

Although these events are several months off, the info is being presented now so that everyone can plan ahead. Participation is NOT limited to SMCC members, so please alert your ham friends who may be available to help as they have done at previous events.

We will have sign up sheets at the next several meetings, or you may email WA9FIH@aol.com. The event organizers provide us with special T-shirts commemorating the event, so we need your size also.
