Here are the major topics discussed in the current edition of the “ARRL Contest Update”:

“NEW HF OPERATORS – THINGS TO DO

If you’re a college or university student enrolled in your school’s radio club, don’t forget about the North America Collegiate Championship (NACC) coming up soon on January 20, 2018. This “contest within a contest” occurs during the North American QSO Party contest. If your club could use some assistance in getting ready for the contest, see the NACC website, and contact the organizers – Contest clubs are aware of this event, and may be able to help.

The upcoming ARRL 10 Meter contest includes both phone and CW modes. Choose to do either, or both. You can work a station once on each mode for credit. During this part of the solar cycle, the pace of activity is likely going to be on the slow side, but that could change depending on short-term solar conditions. Bands are generally more open than we think they are as indicated by tools such as the Reverse Beacon Network and the PSK Reporter websites.”

A reminder for Hawaii Island radio amateurs:

SKYWARN Recognition Day will be held on 01 December 2017, from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m., Hawaii Standard Time. You will find activity on 7.080 MHz (USB), VHF on the DEM RACES and EARC Repeaters, on on Winlink RMS Express (kh7ho@winlink.org).  You don’t have to be a member of SKYWARN to participate.

For the latest Amateur Radio news and information, please check the blog sidebars and links. These news feeds are updated daily and weekly.

Please send your Hawaii Island Amateur Radio news items to kh6jrm@arrl.net at least two weeks prior to your event so I can notify our local print and broadcast media in a timely manner.

Opinions expressed in this blog are mine unless otherwise stated.
