Welcome to the North Dakota ARRL Section News for the 3rd Quarter of 2016

Would like to wish all readers a Happy Holidays and let's hope Santa Claus brings us a Ham Radio gift this year!

The "National Parks on the Air"  is wrapping up and it has been a great success.  The ARRL National Parks on the Air (NPOTA) event ran parallel with the National Park Service’s centennial this year.  There was 408 officially-listed National Park Service administrative units and the 25 recognized Affiliated Areas.

**** Upcoming Events ***

Our first 2017 hamfest will be in Bismarck by CDARC on February 25, 2017.  More details will be emailed when they are available and we will have another ARRL  Forum during the hamfest.
