Grid Madness 2019

KH6WG Skawamae Kawamae
 

Aloha all,
Attached is the information package for the 2019 Grid Madness Simplex VHF/UHF contest that will be held this Sunday afternoon.  

The EARC has decided to add prizes of custom screened T-shirts for the top three EARC members placing in each of the three operating categories: Handi-talkie (8 watts or less), mobile, and base station.  These will be T-shirts with pockets.  The winner's call sign will be printed on the pocket and the back will feature the Grid Madness logo, the category and place won, and EARC listed as the sponsor.  Not only is this an enjoyable fun event, it educates us on our capabilities to operate simplex.  Simplex operations are an imperative mode of operation.  We cannot and should not rely on the great repeater systems we have.

The contest is great fun by itself, and this year the addition of T-shirt prizes should add to that fun.  We encourage all of you to participate!

Jamboree on the Air 18-20 October 2019

Adam Bentley <a12benzo@...>
 

Jamboree-on-the-Air, or JOTA, is the largest Scouting event in the world. It is held annually the third full weekend in October. This year it is 18-20 October 2019.
I wanted to volunteer my support for this but not sure how best to get involved. I was curious if EARC has other members already supporting or interested.  There are multiple ways to do this, DMR, HF, VHF via repeaters.  Evan WH6ECG supported in the past and said "
My opinion is the best interactions are when scouts talk to other scouts, especially scouts who are far away.  To support scouts talking to scouts, I've used internet radio such as IRLP, ECHOLINK, and DMR.  I've used 20m HF from Bellows AFS to connect Windward scouts with Canadian scouts - and that was amazing.  The contact was limited in duration and time of day based on the window for 20m propagation, though."
