Educating, Encouraging and Entertaining - Amateur Radio and BCARA  

If you missed BCARA's participation in the Ohio QSO party you missed a great time.  17 members and 2 guests attended the event.  As we had decided early on, this year wasn't going to be a hard core contesting format.  That made for a great social and on-the-air event.  

The highlight of the event was how we were able to use the contest to help our newer members grow in amateur radio.  Jeff, KD8VZD was able to get some quality time behind the mic.  Robert, KD8WLV, made his FIRST DX CONTACT during the event with the elmering of Eric, KG8FE.  Nikki (no call yet) learned about logging while assisting Matt, KD8SES.  The scores don't mean a thing if we don't have fun and don't help support each other in this teriffic hobby.


 The last of Don Youngblood's equipment will be given away at the Sept. meeting. You must be a member and you may only win one item. Other rules apply..
