MI QSO Party Update

04/17/2016 09:33 | Jim Baksa (Administrator)

MCRC's participation in the Michigan QSO party went very well. Members took this opportunity to hone existing skills and to teach the new operators the ways of good contesting.


Two of our newest operators Tony KE8CDD and Patrick KE8DOA took the operating positions under the watchful eye of Joel WU8Y. Under Joel's tutelage the two new guys found their rhythm and were working pileups like champs.


Experienced operators Stan K8SB, Joel WU8Y, Bob AC8DZ, Gary W8GPR and Jim KD8HFX took over the airwaves and pounded out contact after contact. (Well K8SB was the only one truly "pounding out contacts" Stan's CW skills are unmatched!)


A big thanks goes out to John N8KAM for arranging the stations location. Thanks to all the members who came out on Friday to help put up the antenna.


There were some last minute complications with submitting the log, but we plan to work out that problem this week. Once we have our final points break down we will post that.


73 everyone and good DX in 2016
