ARRL Sweepstakes Week-end

Several club members participated in the event this week-end at the club station and the results were favourable. We achieved at full sweep, which is a contact in every region. Nothing can compare to the thrill of making a contact in Hawaii on 40M at 3am with 100 watts, who says our club station antenna doesn't perform well. Thanks goes out to David Lambert, Mike Watts, Ansil Rock, Corbin Lippert, Tom Pillon and Jim Morris for being part of the team for the week-end.

We have also found the secret to getting that rare section when working a contest, check here for details, though we ask that you not share this information!

As well we had a secret weapon, we purchased the Sweepstakes Contest logging application from n3fjp ( same software company we get our field day logging program) and it was a great piece of software. A big thanks goes out to Scott and Kimberly Davis for their development efforts. Check out all their software at
