Welcome to the North Dakota ARRL Section News for the 4th Quarter of 2014

It is starting to be light longer in the day which is a good indication that spring is coming to North Dakota.  The K1N DX Expedition to the Carribean  is all but over for many of us who chase rare DX so I hope you were able to make a contact with them.  The Hamfest season will soon get going in North Dakota with the Central Dakota ARC fest in Bismarck, ND on February, 28th.

The 2014 ARRL Centennial QSO Party from each state is now history as the centennial year has closed.  A big thank you to all of for helping give North Dakota to the rest of the world in 2014!

**** Upcoming Events ***

The date for the CDARC Hamfest in Bismarck, ND is February 28th with an ARRL Forum to discuss current North Dakota activities and any preamble updates for the ND Nets on 80 meters.  Stop in and say hi to the North Dakota Amateurs at the Hamfest!

The 2015 North Dakota QSO Party will be April 18th & 19th.  This is an opportunity to give out North Dakota to the rest of the world!  Go to www.w0nd.com for more information. 

The Dayton Hamvention will be May 14 thru the 17th in Dayton, Ohio.  This is the largest Hamfest of the year in the US with all kinds of flea market spots and new equipment vendors  to buy that special radio you have been looking for.
