    RaDAR Challenge

    Saturday, November 4th
    Hi everyone, I'm sending this out to let you know about the upcoming RaDAR Challenge this fall. RaDAR stands for Rapid Deployment Amateur Radio, and the challenge is to see how well you can operate with your equipment in a 4 hour window of a 24 hour time period. There will be portable, mobile, and fixed stationary RaDAR stations operating from 00:00UTC to 23:59UTC, the catch is you can only operate your RaDAR station for a total of 4 hours during the challenge.

    I've attached the rules and calling frequencies list. This looks fun and something to try out.

    One idea I had was to get a couple operators together in a HF mobile, maybe go to breakfast, then start operating from the parking lot make the 5 required qsos, drive the minimum distance away and swap operators, make 5 more qsos, drive to the next spot, swap operators, make 5 more qsos, and continue this for the 4 hour time period, then stop for lunch then head home. I could operate while the other logs, and vice versa.

    Join the ARRL!

    If you haven't joined the ARRL, you should strongly consider doing it now! Don't take the Amateur Bands for granted. The ARRL fights constantly to keep private industry from infinging on the Amateur Bands. They lobby the FCC on YOUR behalf. There is a lot of pressure to re-allocate Amateur Bands for business use.

    In order for ARRL to make the case that the Amateur Bands should be preserved, they need to demostrate that there is a real interest in Amateur Radio. Dues paying members provide the money and clout the ARRL needs. This is just one reason you should be a member.

    Check out the ARRL website!
