Release The Hounds!

Many thanks to Jim WX0U for giving us a fox to chase at our April meeting on the 19th. Here are some pic of the event:

Thanks to all who participated, and thanks to Jim WX0U for putting it together.

ARRL Rookie Roundup

The Rookie Roundup returns to Phone on Sunday, April 20, 1800 UTC through 2359 UTC. This is a great opportunity for new operators to get on the air and learn the skills of contesting.

"Old Timers" should also take note of this event. Consider opening your station up to a rookie (or two) and become an elmer. Remember, the more operators are on the air, the more fun the 'Roundup will be for everyone.

Be sure to read the rules before the event. It is also helpful to be familiar with the logging and submission processes ahead of time. You're in the right place; browse this page for information and tips on operating the Rookie Roundup. We hope to hear you on the air!
