FM Simplex Contest April 8

The Allen County Amateur Radio Technical Society (ACARTS) will sponsor a simplex FM contest on the two-meter, 1.25-meter and 70 cm bands April 8, 2017. The contest will run from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. EDT.

According to information provided by the ACARTS, the contest is designed for hams to have fun over a short period. "You don't need to devote an entire weekend, just an enjoyable Saturday evening. So get a cup of hot chocolate, a comfortable chair, and sit down for a few hours to see who is on the air. There will be some rovers running around during the full contest period to keep activity going the entire time."

Complete information, including rules, etc. is available by downloading the PDF file below.
