Basic Information


Welcome to the North Dakota ARRL Section News for the 2nd Quarter of 2017

We are in the heat of the summer months and band conditions have been a challenge with the low sunspot cycle.  The Peace Garden and  the Dickinson Hamfests are now in the history books.  If you missed them, you missed the best part of the hamfest - socializing and the flea market.  The North Dakota QSO Party was a success with many entries for 2017.  Go to to see the results and the winners!

**** Upcoming Events ***

The 2017 RRRA Fargo Hamfest & ND State Convention will be on September 30, 2017 in West Fargo.  Mark your calendars for this hamfest with an ARRL Forum to be schedule at the hamfest.

The Totten Trail Hamfest will be in Garrison, ND again this fall with more information forthcoming on my next ARRL news report.
