Welcome to the North Dakota ARRL Section News for the 1st Quarter of 2014
It's spring time now and the sun sure feels great on the North Dakota lands. Many North Dakota hams on the morning and evening nets are chatting about the birds and animals showing up on their web cams. Joe and Linda Gregg, (N0RF & N0LG) in particular, have new birds and animals to report every day and they are certainly enjoying the signs of spring in Horace, ND.
The 2014 ARRL Centennial QSO Party from North Dakota was a success. The North Dakota hams operating the W1AW/0 made over 28,000 contacts during the week of April 16, 2014. Great Job and thank you for helping give North Dakota to the rest of the world. Our next week of operating W1AW/0 will be August 20th, 2014. If you are interested in being part of the operating group, email me at email@example.com and be part of the ARRL centennial hams using the W1AW/0 call sign.
The 2014 North Dakota QSO Party is also completed and the results will be posted starting June 1st on the website of www.w0nd.com
