have some HF ham radio fun

York Radio Club will set-up, participate, and share this coming Sunday, October 22nd in the Illinois QSO party. The event will be an opportunity for all members to taste, try and triumph on the air.

Club members and guests will gather at the Elmhurst Fire Department Training Facility. Some experienced club members, skilled in the art of making as many contacts as possible in as short a time as is available, will assist those interested in learning the art, often referred to as contesting.

Details this week on the nets – participate as you see fit, but expose yourself and enjoy an afternoon/early evening of making contacts around the states and Canada.  Hope to see you there!
