With New Year’s Day falling on a Tuesday, the January BARA meeting has been postponed to Tuesday, January 8, 2018, but will still meet in the Haeg Conference Room in Bloomington Civic Plaza at 7:30 PM. Use the entrance at the southwest corner of the building. If you need help finding or getting into the building, please call on the 147.090+ (no tone) repeater, or simplex on 147.090 MHz.
The program for the evening will be Contesting 101, and will cover the essential information needed to get started in contesting—be that VHF and above for contests like the ARRL January VHF contest, or HF for events such as the North American QSO Party or the Minnesota QSO Party. Contests are a great way to have fun, gain operating experience, test station capability, and establish good logging habits.
