Cleveland ARC – First Activation of 2018

The Cleveland Amateur Radio Club will be activating the Club House for, our first event of the 2018 Radiosport season, the North American QSO Party(SSB), Saturday, January 20th at 1800z (1pm Eastern Time).
The North American QSO Party is a favorite of beginners and seasoned operators alike. The NAQP is low-power only (no amplifiers allowed) which makes for a lot more breathing room on the bands. Small stations can generate very effective “runs” in the NAQP contest. Multipliers count once per-band, which makes for an exciting format, as multipliers can be “moved” from band to band. The NAQP allow stations from all parts of North America to be in the running for the top spots. The 12 hour format allows participants to do some great contesting, yet still have time for other activities during the weekend.
Details and rules for this event can be found at: http://ncjweb.com/naqp/
As an added bonus to this activation, we will also be operating the ARRL January VHF Contest. This event allows Operators in US and Canada (and their possessions) to work as many amateur stations in as many different 2 degrees x 1 degree Maidenhead grid squares as possible using authorized frequencies above 50 MHz. Details and rules for this event can be found at: http://www.arrl.org/january-vhf
