Hello fellow OU ARC members,

While not an organized event of the club, I thought I would bring to  
your attention the ARRL DX (not in the USA) SSB Phone contest  
happening this weekend.  If any of you are interested in operating on  
HF for this event, please let either me or Robin (KC0BSC) know.  I  
plan on operating some either Saturday afternoon or evening, and  
possibly some on Sunday.  Robin and I are in the works of scrounging  
components to get an antenna of our own in the "new" shack, so that we  
can have monthly operating events.

Whether you are only a Technician class, or know non-hams that might  
be interested, all are welcome to these coming events as a means for  
getting the word out about ham radio in general.  The name of the game  
in this DX contest, is to make contact with as many country entities  
as possible, and likewise, the DX entities are trying to reach all 50  
US states.  We will not be participating for points, but if you  
haven't ever tried contest style QSOs...it's a ton of fun.  Long  
ragchews don't happen here, often just rapid-fire calls lasting less  
than a minute if conditions are good.

In the event that phone is difficult due to band conditions, we will  
be able to work the digital modes as well.
