Field Day Site Change

The Milford Amateur Radio Club’s Field Day site has changed from McCormick Elementary to Mulberry Elementary School, 5950 Buckwheat Rd, Milford due to a scheduling conflict.

Mulberry meets our goal of operating from a site that’s more accessible to the public and provides an area that’s ideal for installation of our new no-tree dependent antenna’s.

ARRL Rookie Roundup

Are you a newly-licensed operator (Rookie)? Have you tuned across the bands during a contest and been too intimidated by the fast pace of the contest exchange to get on the air? Do you run 100 watts and a wire and figure you don’t have a chance competing with the big guns running a kilowatt and stacked beams?

Well, the ARRL Rookie Roundup is the place to make your first contest contact. It’s slow paced and power for all stations is limited to 100 watts.

The Rookie Roundup is Sunday, April 20,2014 and runs from 2:00 PM EDT to 7:59 PM EDT.

Your not a rookie, no problem, you can still operate and give Rookies points. Be sure to read Rule 3.4.

A link to the rules is on the ARRL home page. As usual I encourage anyone planning to participate in the contest to read the rules.
