Other Events

Greetings, all!

PHEW! It has been one of the oddest years, with a pandemic causing us to reschedule our Stockton and Bagnell Dam Special Events to 2021.

We have FANTASTIC news for you, though! Thanks to a stroke of genius by Roger (KD0WXT), we are hosting a month long Special Event called the “BEST DAM CHRISTMAS” Event!

We are going to be transmitting throughout the month of December (December 1, 2020 0:00 UTC-December 31,2020 11:59 UTC) on 10m (phone near 28.440), 20m (phone near 14.240), 40m (phone near 7.240), and 80m (phone near 3.840), via phone, digital, and CW to give everyone a chance to have a little Christmas fun on the airwaves!

Keep an eye on our KE0TGG QRZ page for more information!

Below you will see our QSL card, which we had a super fun time designing!
