Contesting Talk At York Region ARC

Tonight I’m giving a talk on contesting at the York Region ARC.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

There are lots of reasons to get into contesting. (That’s Harry in photo, VA3EC working CW at the Oakville ARC’s Field Day.)

With the Ontario QSO Party coming up April 18 from 1800Z to 0500Z and April 19 from 1200Z to 1800Z.

This is an easy contest as there are a ton of categories and modes plus you’re the station that everyone else wants to work.

Another fun contest is Field Day which is taking place all around North America the weekend of June 27-28. You can work as a club or do the contest on your own. It’s great if you can setup a station outside (after all this is also an emergency preparedness exercise) but you can work from home too.

Most of all, have a good time.
