ARRL 10 Meter Contest! 

Just in time, there is an operating event coming up that is just made for Techs to enjoy - the ARRL 10 Meter Contest. (www.arrl.org/10-meter) It runs beginning late on Friday, Dec 9th (7 PM EST - which is 0000 UTC on Dec 10th) ending 48 hours later on Sunday. You can operate for 36 hours during that time - warning, once you start, it's hard to stop working station after station!

What are Spartan Sprints! 

These are two-hour gatherings sponsored by the Adventure Radio Society, held the first Monday of every month.

The Spartan Sprints have a unique, three-faceted focus. They encourage outdoor operation with back country radio gear (if outdoor operation isn't practical, home-based operation is fine). They gather fascinating information about the upper atmosphere, documenting how low power signals can travel long distancs. And they encourage the growth of a like-minded community of amateur radio operator who generously share their knowedge and experiences
