*** WHAT ***
We'll be running a 3A station this year in order to make sure we have plenty of opportunities for others to get on a radio. This year we will have:
Station 1: CW and Digital station; Morse code, PSK31, etc. Digital modes are easy to pick up.
Station 2: Phone (single-sideband); casual operation, "hunt and pounce"
Station 3: Phone (single-sideband); more intense operation by "running a frequency" (after you feel ready from being on Station 2)
GOTA Station: the "get on the air" station for new hams and non-hams; bring your friends!
VHF Station: working 6-meter, 2-meter, etc. These bands could really open up during the event! Or maybe not. But don't miss out in case they do!

Please sign up for an hour or more on Station 1/2/3 by contacting membership@tcrc.org or kc0dmf@tcrc.org. We'll get you a slot. You can also sign up at the site, though Craig is actively recruiting operators for Station 3.

*** MANY HANDS ... ***
Many hands make light work. Please consider helping us with set up and tear down this year. This is a great way to learn about many aspects of ham radio. And we could really use the help!

*** FOOD ***
We will have some food there (hot dogs, hamburgers, water) but please consider bringing something to share. We plan to use the grill on site.

*** QUESTIONS ***
Send any questions you have to
Craig Larsen (kc0dmf@tcrc.org) or Martin Erickson (w0ucc@tcrc.org)

Hope to see you there!
