Cleveland Amateur Radio Club to Host 2015 ARRL Rookie Round-Up

The Cleveland Amateur Radio Club is pleased to announce it will be hosting the 2015 ARRL Rookie Round-Up on Sunday, April 19 from 2PM until 7:59PM at the CARC clubhouse. The purpose of this event is to encourage newly-licensed operators (Rookies, defined as having been first licensed in the current calendar year or the previous two calendar years) regardless of license class to operate on the HF bands to experience long range communications and competitive Amateur Radio operating. Experienced operators are strongly encouraged to participate and help new operators – either on the air or in person by serving as a radio “Elmer” or Control Operator. If you are interested in participating in this event please let me W4JUU@yahoo.com or one of the club officials know. This being a Multi-Operator/Single Transmitter event with a six hour operating period, we want to make sure every participant has adequate operating time. Complete details for this event can be found at http://www.arrl.org/rookie-roundup.
