Setup will start around 8:00 on Saturday morning with the contest starting at noon. We are planning a meal for club members, guests and anyone else that shows up to visit at 2:00. Additionally, we plan a joint club meeting 3:00 and a testing session at 4:00.
We will be running two contest stations and a "Get On the Air" station will be available for anyone, licensed or not, to try their hand at the HF contest experience. The contest is 24 hours, from noon Saturday until noon Sunday.
