For those of you interested in VHF Century Club. Most of the VHF spectrum has been decently skipping off the atmosphere over the last few weeks. While this is great for those grid square chasers it is not good for our repeaters.
Here is the July 2016 edition of the Ham Arundel News.
Edit: Because of all the color pictures added to this issue, it wouldn't fit on the AARC site. I've posted it on my personal site and the link is here:
I plan to be at the club at 0900 tomorrow (Friday) to start getting things set up. The biggest things are shelters and masts. Make sure you have sunscreen, a hat and cool clothes. The forecast is for nice weather, but it can get hot really quickly. Bring your HT and we'll use the club simplex frequency to coordinate while we're on site. Let's have fun!
