Special Event Begins TOMORROW!

Hello, my D.A.R.K.lings!

I honestly can’t believe it’s July. It feels like I just sat down to schedule our inaugural special event a few days ago!

You have probably seen the PDF in our group which I put together to help everyone operate during the event. We have some hams who are new to contesting, new to the club, and new to ham radio in general. I encourage these hams to drop by our farm on either weekend of the event (Except the 27th from 9 am-12 pm, since I will be teaching CERT class in Warsaw!) and sit in to see how much fun contesting/special events are! It’s my real enjoyment in amateur radio and I love sharing the experience!

Here is the certificate request information for our special event under call sign W0T:

Send an email with your name, call sign, contact time/date/frequency and PDF certificate request to kd0wxt@gmail.com to receive an emailed pdf

AND/OR

to receive a full-color, printed certificate, submit a self-addressed, stamped envelope to the following address:

Roger Henley

C/O D.A.R.K. Dam Amateur Radio Klub

32018 Hwy 7

Edwards, MO 65326

This information is also posted on the Special Events page.

I can’t wait to see how we do! Have fun with it, everyone!

73,

Sam Henley KE0LMY
