The San Francisco Radio Club will participate in the "Amateur Radio Club QSO Party" June 17th-19th 2017. Clubs all over the U.S. are invited to participate in this event created by the South Jersey Radio Assn., the 2nd oldest club in the nation. Report format will include the clubs' age. SJRA & SFRC will be "Bonus" contacts as we will sign with "/101" denoting our 101st year.
This really looks like a fun QSO party and with diminished DX opportunities it gives us another chance to stretch our HF capabilities and warm up for Field Day. Since W6VSF remains in a state of flux, we will rely on several home stations to
represent the club. My QTH will, of course, be offered. I am taking operating time requests now (email@example.com). See the attached documents for details.
The 3rd annual San Francisco FM QSO Party will be held on August 26, 2017. More details can be found by pressing the below button or going to the events menu.
I would like to invite you and your club members to the Valley of the Moon (VOMARC) annual HAMFEST on April 29th.
The event features a swap meet, delicious breakfast, VE session, demonstration stations, prizes, and much more.
Please visit Vomarc.org for more info and a flyer download.
Hope to see you there.
